Following the success of our 2013 breast cancer awareness campaign, we directed and produced the "BE AMPED for Breast Cancer:  Give Yourself the Gift of Health for the Holidays".  Originally set for release in the fall of 2014, the campaign grew to be much bigger than expected with more media partners and community collaborators.  As a result, in 2015, we hope to encourage many to give themselves the gift of knowledge and their health as a priority.
