Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I've been writing about people in the entertainment industry who have been making a difference in the fight against breast cancer. So I wanted to make sure to mention "Frosted Pink," a TV special airing today on ABC designed to raise awareness of all women's cancers.
The event features musical performances, appearances from cancer survivor Sharon Osborne and other celebrities, and figure skating exhibitions from star athletes including Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi. Yeah, I know, the figure skating's a little random. But there's a great slate of musical performers lined up, including Joss Stone, Olivia Newton-John and Heart. I'm especially intrigued by Shades of Pink, a chorus made up entirely of breast cancer survivors, whom you can see backing Stone in the picture above.
I'm glad ABC is devoting some of its broadcast time to raising awareness of breast cancer and all cancers that affect women. The special airs from 4 to 6 p.m. EDT (check your local listings in other time zones) and will be repeated on the Style Network throughout October.
