JACKSONVILLE, Ore. -- Cycle Analysis in Jacksonville held a race Saturday afternoon to help women afford breast cancer screenings. Jana Jensen owns Cycle Analysis. It holds 10 charity races a year, 9 for search and rescue and the other for one organization of her choosing.

"It seems like a natural thing for me to do, to use the cycle races as a vehicle to race money for charities in the Valley," Jensen said.

Saturday's race was all about helping women get access to mammograms Jensen is no stranger to mammograms or breast cancer.

"My mother had a double mastectomy. She's the most amazing person and I myself have had breast cancer and so I know how important it is," She added.

She wants to make sure everyone can survive cancer just like she has.

"I was talking to the breast cancer navigator at Asante imaging yesterday and she was telling me that there was a woman that she spoke to that needed help getting a mammogram because she had tumors in her breast for the last two years and she didn't have the money to get a mammogram. Given the current insurance thing there are a lot of women out there that don't get mammograms because they can't afford them or their insurance doesn't cover them," Jensen added.

All of the proceeds are going to the Asante Foundation Mamo-fund. This helps women who cannot afford breast cancer screenings get mammogram. Cyclists were happy to compete for the cause.
