It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of husband, father, friend, and Master Mechanic founder Don Ballard, who managed our family owned and operated vehicle repair facility for many years. Don fought a courageous battle but, sadly, succumbed to pancreatic cancer on November 17, 2017. The Ballard family would like to thank everyone who joined Don in this fight and all those who hoped and prayed for his recovery.

Master Mechanic will continue to operate as the same family owned and operated neighborhood business, providing you the continuity of high quality vehicle care to which you have become accustomed. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at: b.ballard @, or Shop Manager Leonard Lemelson at: leonard @

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and patronage.

Brakes for Breasts

One Day

You Can Get FREE Brakes and Support Breast Cancer Research!

Brakes for Breasts

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we’re inviting you to JOIN THE FIGHT with us! We here at Master Mechanic have teamed up with other automotive shops across the country participating in Brakes For Breasts which supports The Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund.

Brakes For Breasts chose to donate to this organization for important reasons:

    1. 100% of the proceeds that we contribute will go directly to research. There was a lot of time and effort placed in the selection of the recipient of our fundraising efforts. There are so many great organizations out there, yet our discovery was that in most cases less than 10% of a donation would go to the actual cause or cure. Often the dollars donated tend to end up in administrative or marketing efforts. That was not what we were after! Many fundraising organizations are solely focused on raising awareness, which is fantastic as we need to cover all aspects. However, Dr. Tuohy is one of the few pioneers that is actually focused on prevention and yet he does not receive the support of the major fundraising efforts out there, as they do not share the same vision.
    2. Dr. Tuohy, at the Cleveland Clinic, has actually created a vaccine that has been proven effective in laboratory animals in actually preventing breast cancer. Think about Polio, eradicated because of a vaccine, a distant memory for most generations. This is the same principle! Now, after 13 long years Dr. Tuohy and his research team are just a year away from their first bedside trial! It is amazing to be a part of something that could prevent breast cancer.


Here’s How You Can Participate and Receive Your FREE Brakes!

During the month of October, for every brake service performed at our shop, we will donate 10% of that brake service to The Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. Plus, for helping out, we will give you a set of brake pads for FREE; all you pay for is the labor and any other necessary parts. Money is the only thing holding back this breakthrough in breast cancer research! Together, we have the ability to make a huge impact on the prevention of Breast Cancer.

Can you even imagine a world free of breast cancer? In the words of the Cleveland Clinic’s very own Dr. Tuohy, “Prevention is the cure!” Wow, think about a future where your daughters or granddaughters never have to fall victim to such a widespread disease. This vaccine also has the potential to be used for other forms of cancer and even other diseases down the road. Let’s band together and get the fight started and help put the brakes on cancer! But hurry! The FREE brake pad offer is only good through the month of October. Schedule your appointment today.  Call us at 703-449-9000 or click on “Request Appointment” on the left. Daily appointments for this promotion are limited.
