Breast cancer survivor wins "Skin it to Win It" Contest

It looks like a Minnesota breast cancer survivor not only has a new lease on life - she also is sporting a seriously vamped up vehicle.

Susan Edman was awarded first place in Tornados brand snack food's Facebook Challenge, called "Skin It To Win It," and got the chance to meet NASCAR driver Ryan Newman, $1000, and a free vehicle wrap.

Edman's husband, Chris, entered his courageous wife in the contest.

"My wife survived breast cancer last year and while Ryan Newman has always been her favorite, he was especially helpful during chemo, although he will never know that," Chris wrote in his entry. "Watching him race...was a welcome distraction for her while enduring the weekly poison that ultimately saved her life."

The contest, which began in March and ended in May of this year, garnered more than 2,400 submissions.

This isn't the first time NASCAR has promoted awareness of the disease. In fact, in the past, teams have decorated cars in the color pink to mark breast cancer awareness month.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19883114-ADNFCR
