Ellen DeGeneres Joins the Anti-Breast Cancer Campaign

Funny lady Ellen DeGeneres is getting serious about breast cancer. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she's recorded a series of phone messages urging women to help themselves fight this disease, the second most lethal kind of cancer affecting women. You can go online and send phone messages to your friends and family from Ellen that say, "Hi, this is Ellen DeGeneres and (insert your name here) told me to remind you that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you should schedule a check-up with your doctor."

Vitamin maker One a Day asked Ellen to join their campaign to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Ellen was happy to be on board since she likes to support an anti-breast cancer program each year. This issue is close to her heart since her own mother had a mastectomy 30 years ago. It's touched her family and she's well aware that she could be next. Since Ellen is so vulnerable to breast cancer, she gets a mammogram every year, and she's encouraging fellow women to be proactive about their breast health.

I just sent a message to my sister and it only took a minute!

wackdoodle - i'm so sorry to hear about your aunt - please know that we are thinking about you. even knowing of one more connection to someone who's suffered from the disease should all show us that it's really important to fund research for cures and treatment of this form of cancer.

My Aunt just died this morning of breast cancer. I vow to keep giving to the SGK and other breast cancer research organizations and to keep fighting for her until there is a true preventative measure that everyone can take to stop breast cancer, better ways to detect breast cancer, doctors who do not brush off young women's concerns about lumps or abnormalities in their breasts because they are "too young" to develop the disease or have no family history of breast cancer and until there is a cure. For my Aunt Zoe. For everyone affected by breast cancer.
