Lee Jeans® Spotlights Local Woman Fighting Breast Cancer In Cause Campaign With The American Cancer Society®

MERRIAM, Kan., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of National Cancer Survivors Day, Lee Jeans is proud to name Amy, a Kansas City resident currently fighting breast cancer, the 2013 Lee National Denim Day ambassador. On Friday, October 4, millions will join the Lee National Denim Day movement by putting on their jeans and donating $5 to raise millions of dollars for the American Cancer Society's programs that help women like Amy rise above the disease.

Courageous and empowered, Amy is currently battling breast cancer. As an avid runner and triathlete, Amy was stunned when she was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer at the age of 40. Beginning chemotherapy in February of 2013, Amy continues to fight valiantly with the daily encouragement of her friends. Though she's powerful enough to complete an Iron Man competition, Amy attributes her persistence in her battle with breast cancer to her resilient team of supporters.

"When I first found out I had breast cancer, the first thing I did was turn to my friends and family for support. It's the little things they do, like helping me run errands, that keep me going," said Slater. "By joining together on Lee National Denim Day, we can all be a part of a nationwide support team to ensure no woman fights this disease alone."

The beneficiary for the 2013 Lee National Denim Day is the American Cancer Society®, the largest voluntary health organization in the United States and the leader in the fight to end breast cancer – and all cancers. The Society works to create a world without breast cancer by combining relentless passion with the wisdom of a century of experience in saving lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. This year, Lee National Denim Day hopes to contribute millions to the American Cancer Society as they celebrate their 100 th birthday and pledge to finish the fight against cancer.

Net proceeds raised from Lee National Denim Day will benefit the Society's community-based programs, including lifesaving screenings and a free place to stay when breast cancer patients and their caregivers have to travel away from home for treatment.
