Athena's Cup & October Breast Cancer Awareness Month

These people are on a mission. They are battling breast cancer one bra at a time. With every bra they collect for the Athena's Cup, they remind people how important it is to get screened for breast cancer and to make healthy life-style choices to minimize the risk of breast cancer. To date they have collected 151,823 bras. Once the Athena's Cup collects 169,000 bras they will create the worlds largest bra chain and break the worrld record. So send us your bras! 

Athena’s Cup president and founder is Jennifer Jolicoeur.  Jennifer and the staff that supports Athena’s Cup is strictly volunteer and no one receives a salary for the work they do.  Athena's Cup is dedicated to spreading the word that breast exams, mammograms, research and healthy life-styles are critical parts of reducing risk and finding a cure.

Information on Mammograms

We wanted to share some really important information about mammograms with you from the National Cancer Institute. Mammograms - Key Points

**A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. Screening mammograms are used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Diagnostic mammograms are used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found.

**Screening mammography can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74.

**Potential limitations of screening mammography include false-positive results, overdiagnosis and overtreatment, false-negative results, and radiation exposure.
