A California Girl Loves Iowa, and Iowa Loves Her

Lyndsey Medders found her way from the sun and warmth of Santa Monica, California to the cold Midwestern winters of Ames, Iowa where she is the leader of the Cyclones' women's basketball team.

Not only has Medders adapted to her different environment, she has embraced the community of Ames and won the hearts of young and old alike. She's taken a path less travelled, but what would you expect from a basketball player who cites "The Inner Game of Tennis" as a strong influence on her athletic career.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
