La Mesa auto repair shop
raising money for breast cancer vaccine
LA MESA -- Summit Transmissions, 7633 El Cajon Blvd. in La Mesa, has announced it is donating 10 percent from its sales on brake work performed in October to Brakes for Breasts (www.brakesforbreasts.org), a fundraising effort for a vaccine to prevent breast cancer. In addition, Jerry Kubitsky, owner, Summit Transmissions, said he is providing free brake pads, a $109 value, to every customer needing new brakes.
Summit Transmissions is among a growing group of independent auto repair shops across the nation raising money this month to support research for the Cleveland Clinic breast cancer vaccine fund, said Kubitsky. Since 2011, Brakes for Breasts has raised about $500,000. Cleveland Clinic officials have reportedly successfully tested a breast cancer prevention vaccine in lab tests in preparation for the start of phase 1 trials.
“Help us create a world where our daughters and granddaughters will never have to worry about the tragedy of facing breast cancer,” said Kubitsky. “Additionally, this research is also spearheading a vaccine for ovarian, prostrate and other cancers.”
Summit Transmissions, in business since 1982, is a member of Automotive Service Council of California (ASCCA), which established an emergency fund to help Kubitsky. He has worked at Summit Transmissions since 1986 and acquired the business in 1994. The shop relocated from El Cajon to La Mesa in July 2006.
