Foothill Ranch-based Oakley Inc. announced Thursday that it is extending its partnership with Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the international nonprofit network focused on the concerns and issues unique to young women affected by breast cancer.

Oakley will release two new YSC special-edition eyewear designs for the popular Oakley Women's Program. The new products are modified versions of Oakley Dangerous and Commit sunglasses currently available YSC editions of Oakley Ravishing and Enduring, completing a collection that benefits the ongoing work of YSC.

This is the second year Oakley has supported YSC and its mission to promote action, advocacy and awareness for breast cancer prevention and cure. Oakley donates $20 from the sale of each special-edition eyewear product to help drive the organization and its efforts to improve the quality of life for women facing the challenges of breast cancer, particularly those affected who are relatively young.

"Oakley is honored to continue its support of the Young Survival Coalition and its ongoing mission," says Jenn Bradley, women's brand director, Oakley. "With the work of YSC, young women diagnosed with breast cancer receive the information, guidance and empowerment they need to face the most challenging chapter of their lives. Oakley is proud to be part of such a noble cause,"

Oakley has also teamed up with professional beach volleyball player and breast cancer awareness activist, Michelle More, to support YSC.
