Become the Face of Mission Strength!

ATLANTA, Feb. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amoena, the world's leading breast care brand, understands that surviving breast cancer takes everything you've got -- determination, courage and a whole lot of attitude! So Amoena is joining with the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) to bring you an inspirational contest and nationwide search for the next Amoena Ambassador.

For more than 35 years Amoena has partnered with women during their battle to fight breast cancer, recognizing that the battle becomes a woman's Mission and she has no choice but to accept it. YSC works with women to find their inner strength and draw upon it to succeed. In recognition of every breast cancer survivor's strength and YSC's endless support in helping women tackle breast cancer, Amoena is organizing Mission Strength. We know that you deserve a medal -- or at least the chance to be an Amoena Ambassador, enjoy a spa day getaway, and support other women.

If you're a difference-maker, a charge-leader, an activist, or a trend-setter (or if you know one) tell us your story. Visit Amoena US online at: and tell us how you have redefined strength and beauty after your breast cancer journey. Or you may enter by emailing us at with "MISSION: STRENGTH" in your subject line. Enter by the deadline, March 14, 2014, and include a recent photo of yourself. Winners will be announced on April 1, 2014.* And get ready to win!
