As part of its Wellness Program, Mount Gravatt Mazda will soon be rolling out its eye-catching pink SUV to spark conversations around the importance of early detection and screening.

“As a local family-owned business in Brisbane, we feel very close to this campaign. Our owner and Dealer Principal, Julian Mason has been on his own personal journey with his family,” MGM said.

Julian’s mother, Carole, was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer in 2018. As part of her treatment, she underwent two lumpectomies along with four rounds of chemotherapy and daily radiation. Carole was able to win the battle against the disease owing to early detection. 

However, his Aunty Jill who was also diagnosed in 2019 wasn’t as lucky. She had a mastectomy followed by chemotherapy. She lost her three-year battle at the age of 43.

“We all know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer, and it is our turn to stand up and join the fight. Our goal is to promote awareness and early detection of the disease in our community.” – Julian Mason | Dealer Principal

And in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness this month of October, MGM will also be supporting Brisbane-based breast cancer charity, Be Uplifted. All funds raised will go towards the charity’s efforts to extend support services and financial assistance to local women and men who are seriously ill with breast cancer and their family.

Mount Gravatt Mazda Holds 3rd Annual Toy Drive for Kids with Cancer, DV Victims

Did you know that Mount Gravatt Mazda runs a Christmas toy drive for children affected by cancer and domestic violence? Now in its third year, the toy drive upholds the goal of making a difference in a child’s life.

Whilst the Christmas season is the most wonderful time of the year, it can be the most difficult time for families of kids with cancer and those seeking refuge from domestic violence. Thus, Mount Gravatt Mazda came up with the toy drive to bring some festive cheer to those who may be scared and lonely during this season.

So, until the 18th of December 2021, Mount Gravatt Mazda will accept gift donations, especially new toys, for the children to unwrap on Christmas Day. The dealership is hoping to fill up the Mazda BT-50 sleigh, currently on display at the showroom floor, with heaps of gifts that will be distributed to various paediatric oncology patients who will be at the Childhood Cancer Support annual Christmas party. 

Two organisations will also benefit from the donations: Childhood Cancer Support and Beyond DV

Childhood Cancer Support is non-profit established by a group of parents and has been around for 45 years. Through their help, families affected by childhood cancer receive treatment and care at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. 

Beyond DV, established by mom and Holland Park teacher Carolyn Robinson, offers recovery and support programs for women and children of domestic violence. The organisation provides hands-on guidance as they rebuild their lives after a traumatic experience.

“At Mount Gravatt Mazda, we strongly believe that we have a responsibility to give something back to the community in which we do business. To act on this belief, we created our annual Festive Community Drive which is dedicated to supporting our local community at Christmas.”

To donate to this cause, please take note of the guidelines below:
