Everyone likes breasts. Most men (and
some women) like to look at them, some women like to show them off and
they are a nurturing
aspect of a baby's feeding process that
was once (before formulas) vital to life.
The organizers of Breast Fest 2002 are
aware of this fascination and the concern for the growing number of cases
of breast cancer.
Breast Fest 2002 is an event that will

The musical line-up is Ashbury Keys, College
Station's Feeding 5000, Austin's Endochine and Westbury Squares and Houston's
The Pander Band.

range from a bluesy rock to mainstream rock to any other good-time musical
sound, all the
breast-crazed people in the crowd can
set their gazes on the many breasts that will be gracing the stage.
Exotic dancers who love to bare all can
get in free to the event with their official license. The Gentleman's Club
waitresses can also get in for
free. For all others, the ticket price
is a mere $6 and a portion of the proceeds go breast cancer awareness,
screenings and treatments.

to be diagnosed with breast
cancer, 400 of whom are expected to die.
Breast cancer is the leading cancer among
American women and second only to lung cancer in deaths. Among 40- to 59-year-old
America, it is the leading cause of death.
Almost everyone in the United States today
has known someone with breast cancer. The statistics are rising and more
research needs to be
