Battle for the Breasts is an on-line video surf contest presented by Ambry Genetics and powered by Surfline.
The world's top female surfers will go head-to-head during October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) to raise awareness and compete for genetic testing vouchers donated by Ambry Genetics on behalf of Mauli Ola Foundation to the qualifying cancer clinics.
Foundations who sign up will have a chance to win up to $50,000 in hereditary breast cancer genetic testing vouchers for their associated hospital/clinic. Ambry Genetics is giving away a total of $125,000 in free testing vouchers.
The official battle pairings will be drawn on September 30th at 3:00 PM PST and will be broadcasted live on the MOF Facebook page. Sixteen randomly chosen foundations will be paired with a top women’s professional surf athlete.
The goal of this contest is to spread awareness about the importance of early detection in breast cancer. During the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness month), visit surfline.com and vote for the surfer/clinic of your choice. At the end of the voting period, Ambry Genetics will be donating complementary genetic testing vouchers to the pairs that receive the most votes.

"Early detection for breast cancer is the key to making this disease curable. Targeting women to appropriate screening, based on their personal or family history, or results of genetic testing, is the most effective mechanism we have for preventing breast cancer and saving lives."

"With these vouchers, we are able to provide vital genetic information to at-risk women who might otherwise not have access to testing. We are grateful to Coco, the Mauli Ola Foundation, and Ambry Genetics in helping us with our mission to help our patients gain more knowledge and insights into their risk for cancer."
