IRVING - Dozens of health care professionals are putting their undergarments on display for the entire world to see.

It's part of a campaign to get North Texas women tested for breast cancer. Called "Bras for a Cause," Baylor Medical Center in Irving has put dozens of bras on display inside the lobby of their cancer center.

The program encourages breast cancer survivors to create unique or humorous bras to grab people's attention and raise awareness of breast cancer.

"I think it's important to keep a sense of humor,” said Linda Wynn, a breast cancer survivor who works at Baylor Medical Center. “Cancer is a very serious subject. People don't want to talk about it, but if you talk about people with a bunch of silly bras or men modeling a bunch of bras and so forth like you see on the news, I think it lightens it up and brings the conversation out."        

Organizers say the bras have been traveling around to various events and will be on display until the end of October. After that, the bras will be sold on eBay, with the money going to the Irving Healthcare Foundation to help fund breast cancer treatment.
