NEWTON, Mass., Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- During October, participating Valvoline Instant Oil Change SM (VIOC) locations will offer customers the opportunity to help raise much-needed dollars to support American Cancer Society (ACS) and its Road To Recovery program which helps transport cancer patients to potentially life-saving treatment appointments. For an even bigger impact, customers can download a coupon from ValvolineFightsCancer.com and for every coupon redeemed, VIOC will donate an additional five dollars to ACS.
"DON'T PUT IT OFF!" Recent reports show that due to the pandemic, 46% fewer patients were diagnosed with cancer. This means many cancers won't be discovered until they are in advanced stages when they are more difficult to treat. In support of ACS, VIOC wants to remind everyone that just like maintaining fluids in their vehicle prevents major repairs, getting recommended cancer screenings does the same for their body.
"We are excited for the opportunity to again partner with ACS," said William Smelley, Vice President of Marketing for Henley Enterprises, VIOC's largest franchisee. "Thanks to the generosity of the communities we serve, we've raised over $126,000 to help this life-changing organization."
"Driving awareness about screenings is a core part of our work and will help to save more lives by detecting cancer at its earliest stage," said Jane Barnes, Regional Director, Corporate Relations for ACS.
