Arizona Calendar Girls 'Wild Women of Williams" Raise Money for Research

Looking at the shelves of the average magazine rack, you're unlikely to find anything but airbrushed, young bodies.

But looking through the pages of a new calendar of Arizona women, you'll see nothing needs retouched.

When thinking of ways they could raise money for cancer research, one of the "Wild Women of Williams" thought of the world famous "Calendar Girls" in England who inspired a movie.

Twelve ladies decided to bare it all and pose nude in a tasteful photo shoot. Some say they were a little shy, but glad they ventured out of their comfort zone for a good cause.

The calendar features women in their 40's, 50's and 60's and will raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The ladies say it was such an amazing experience, they joke they'll be talking about it when they're in nursing homes.

In just the first month, sales from the calendars have raised five thousand dollars for cancer research.
