What a wonderful cause!
Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is taking a stand for women's health, and starting today, will launch a national campaign with the American Cancer Society to promote the prevention of the horrible disease!
"Cancer is something that touches everyone's lives. Women are busy taking care of other people. This is about choosing yourself. My daily schedule is quite hectic, but I have to put my health first in order to be the best mom and wife I can be."
Elizabeth Fontham, of the American Cancer Society, agrees:
"Women hold the keys to cancer prevention because they are the chief medical and chief operating officers of their individual households. But they really struggle to make their own health a priority."
Well-spoken! It's time to take care of yourselves, ladies!
Congratulations for taking a stand, Ellen! We think your noteriety as Meredith Grey and as a mom will be very beneficial to the campaign!
