Mustang Brings Back Breast Cancer Awareness Program

MMP14_FB Bikefest

Once again Mustang is been proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our new “Fight Like A Girl” custom seat program and the ability to donate a portion of the proceeds of every pink seat or pink ribbon to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is close to our hearts, literally and figuratively.  We continue to honor the determination and compassion of those fighting breast cancer.

MarjThere is more to this story than just a publicity stunt… much more. This cause directly impacts several members of the Mustang family. Long-time Mustang rep Pat Pierantozzi is a breast cancer survivor of 35 years and this October marks one year cancer-free for Rallymeister John Glynn’s niece. John’s lovely wife Marjorie, who many of you have met at the Mustang big rig at the rallies has been an advocate of Breast Cancer Awareness for years and it was her pink flamed Softail Deluxe that inspired Mustang’s original “Think Pink” seat campaign. We ask Marj for an update on her niece’s battle:

“It has been a year since our last Breast Cancer Seat came out,” says Marj. “As you know, Mustang did this for me in honor of my niece Robin and what she had been through all year. I am so happy to say my niece has been cancer-free for a year now and doing well.  Here are a few pictures, that tell the tale!”

RobinBradley“The picture with Robin Bradley (my niece) on the porch was leaving for her last chemo, the neighbors and town friends put them there to show their support in July 2013,” she explains. The townspeople lined the streets of the path that she would be taking to her last treatment with signs and shouting their support. The last group just outside of town was her three sons. “It was so touching to see the entire community come out in support.”

“My niece is often asked “what can I do to help, do you prefer one charity over another?” She always replies: “if you want to and are able, donate to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Research Center in Boston.”

“The motorcycle with the breast cancer awareness seat is one of the customers that came in to thank me in Daytona 2014. She and her husband personally thanked me for helping to start this “movement” of awareness with something as big as a motorcycle. They were thankful that Mustang would make the custom seats and contribute to a Breast Cancer Awareness charity.”

It was a very difficult year for her, family and friends, but she is now a survivor! I thank God every day. http://robinbradley.blogspot.com/2013/10/past-finish-line.html (posted with permission)

Pink Seat3Marj’s message has hit home. In fact a customer came to the Mustang truck at Daytona Bike Week to show off her “Think Pink” seat this year, and dozens of others have done the same since.

I am thankful to Mustang for allowing me to be a part of the new “Fight Like A Girl” program (Marj received the very first seat of the new series with the custom embroidered message). I am excited about my new seat and what it represents to me… and all for a great cause, too. Thank you so very much Mustang!”

    Marjorie, so glad to see and hear that your niece Robin and her family are doing well.My wish for her is many, many,years of good health with plenty of fun times with her boys. Girls like Robin are the ones I think about the most. All they want is to be there to raise their children So many don’t get that chance. We need to help so that they can be there…

    Thank you again Mustang for bringing this very important cause to all who will listen.Those all important ” GIRL’S” in your life, no matter what age. Let’s make this years “Girl’s FIGHT for life a positive one, one that leads to the end of this dreadful disease.

    I’ve been blessed with 35 years more than so many of these young woman, let’s give them a chance by helping however you can. If you yourself don’t ride remind those that do about this great cause. Of course that beautiful pink,well designed, not to mention comfortable MUSTANG seat would be a good place to start.

    Thank you again Mustang,
    Pat Pierantozzi
    So happy to be a part of the Mustang family
