The Veterans Training Support Center is PROUD to host The Athena Division of The Grace Project. The Grace Project is an empowering photographic project by fine art photographer Charise Isis that captures the courage beauty and grace of those who have had mastectomy surgery as a result of breast cancer. The Athena Division takes up arms with those enlisted in the battle against breast cancer and body image. True warriors, the subject of the photographs, are United States Veterans and active military personnel, women accustomed and trained for battle. According to a 2009 DoD study, it was found that their service exposures gave up to a 40% increased risk of developing breast cancer.
All veterans, military connected individuals, community members, service providers are encouraged to attend. ALL persons, who have survived breast cancer, are eligible to have their portrait taken.
