The woman Melissa Burns behind a documentary on patients with breast cancer is teaming up with an Alpharetta salon to fight the disease that's diagnosed in thousands of women each year.

Cancer? Seriously? is partnering with Muse Salon and Spa to host the Art Bra Atlanta Runway Show and Live Auction in November at The Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta.

The show is set for 7 p.m. Thursday Nov. 7 and the organization is looking for those who are interested in creating what's called an art bra to model in the runway show. 

Bras are due by Oct. 12. To submit a bra: 

  • Include a small name tag with your name and the name of the bra attached to the inside of the bra. 2530 designs will be used in the actual auction and runway show due to time constraints. The others will be raffled off to lucky winners.
  • Please write a paragraph (No more than 250 words) on who/what inspired the creation and/or dedicate it to a special individual.
  • Each submission must be properly boxed/packaged/labeled to be considered for the show. 
  • Please email your paragraph, bra title, and contact information to cancer.seriously@gmail.com by October 12th. Email or call (678) 620-9045 for more information and where to send bra submission. 

Of course, the organization is also looking for sponsors for the event and sponsorship levels are listed in the. PDF document attached to the article. 

Cancer? Seriously? is a documentary that follows the lives of four women who survived breast cancer and includes interviews with three women who've lost family members to the disease. 

The documentary will be entered into the film festival circuit for 2014-15. Money raised at the event will go to music, color correction and festival fees in relation to the documentary.  

Money not used towards the documentary will go to The Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation, a grassroots organization that raises money for breast cancer research.
