It was to be a Merry Christmas ten years ago as Denise Guardino, her husband Tim Baker and daughter Lauren were putting the finishing touches on the Christmas tree. "I was up on a ladder, almost finished with the tree when I told my husband that my arm hurt," said Denise. Tim encouraged her to get down and that they needed to take a break. The next morning as they woke up on Christmas Day Denise discovered that her breast was swollen and hard. "We rushed to the doctor and they discovered the tumor." Denise had breast cancer.

Denise never skipped a beat. Despite strenuous career demands. Denise is the CEO of Bill Jacobs MotorSport where she meets regularly with executive bankers, lawyers, manufacturers and still manages six dealerships. "I took one day off, and that was for chemotherapy on a Friday and I was back in my office on Monday morning," says Denise. She loves what she does and her company stood by her offering time off and extra help. Denise wanted to continue her routine and remain strong for her colleagues and, most importantly, her family.

Today, Denise is celebrating her tenth year in remission. Land Rover supports Denise and others who are battling or have survived cancer at the Y- ME Race to Empowerment as an official Sponsor and Pace Car at the Y-ME race Sunday, May 13, 2007. The race begins at 9 a.m.

The funds raised at Y-ME's Race to Empowerment help bring immediate access to information and support to everyone affected by breast cancer. Land Rover is donating $50.00 for every new Land Rover sold at one of the 7 Chicagoland locations throughout the entire month of May. "We have set a goal to raise $10,000 for Y-ME, and we are stuffing a Land Rover L3 with goodies any family would love such as a baby jogging stroller, groceries, a golf bag and Cubs tickets. Whoever guesses the value of the items inside the L3 wins all of the prizes, Land Rover not included," said Guardino. Land Rover has dealerships in Chicago, Hinsdale, Hoffman Estates, Lake Bluff, Naperville, Tinley Park and Winnetka. Find your closest retailer at LandRoverIllinois.com.
