NewsChannel 3 has partnered with Beyond Boobs to take action for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

On Tuesday, October 15 and Wednesday, October 16, volunteers from Beyond Boobs will operate the NewsChannel 3 Taking Action Help Line.

A new car is up for grabs - just buy a raffle ticket for $50. The money will be donated to breast cancer survivors.

The phone number to call is 757-626-0303. Call on Tuesday during the Noon newscast; and Wednesday during the hours of 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Beyond Boobs is dedicated to healing and saving lives by supporting young women diagnosed with breast cancer while providing breast health education for all.

Here is the Beyond Boobs mission statement:

The Beyond Boobs family values love above all and develops and nurtures positive relationships through trust, respect, and gratitude. We put people first to create an inclusive, accepting, and comforting environment. We bring healing humor with sassy, quirky style and hope to the serious and overwhelming topic of breast cancer. We encourage everyone to overcome personal adversity through healing of mind and spirit and to approach life with an attitude of abundance. We meet the unique needs and challenges of the women we serve, and inspire all to live life with an exclamation point (!) instead of a period (.) We aim for a balanced lifestyle and to make healthy choices for self and planet. We practice forgiveness and honesty, and treasure every moment.
