What’s the connection between breast cancer and car inspections?

If you’re Nick Torcini, co-owner of Smith’s Auto & Truck Service, it’s an opportunity to raise funds to help local breast cancer patients.

“We enjoy working with local organizations and coming up with fun ideas that give back to the community,” said Nick, who owns the Doylestown business with his brother, Al Torcini.

Smith’s organized a breast cancer awareness fundraiser during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For each state inspection performed during October, Smith’s Auto & Truck Service would donate $25 to Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute. With community support, Smiths raised $4,100.

“Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute offers high-quality oncology care and allows our patients and their families to stay close to home,” said Jim Brexler, president and CEO of Doylestown Health. “We are a nonprofit health system and are especially grateful for the support of our caring community and the generosity of organizations like Smith’s Auto & Truck Service.” The team from Smiths recently presented the check Brexler at The Cancer Institute.
