Terrence Howard is known around Hollywood for being a little full of himself, and kinda hard to work with. We're glad he's doing something to change that frame of mind, because we really do think he's one hell of an actor!
Terrence has joined the Colon Cancer Alliance, and has recorded a new PSA for the group — all about getting people the proper screening for colon cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America. It's also very preventable with the right kind of screening!
Unfortunately, it couldn't be prevented in Terrence's mother, and that's why he has taken up this fight:
“I miss my mother’s voice and her gentle kindness. But despite my loss, my mom would love to know that her battle with colon cancer helped save others."
Virtually equal numbers of women (69,140) and men (73,680) are diagnosed with colon cancer each year, and yet people still view it as a "man's disease."
Check out Terrence's inspirational PSA (above), and make sure you get screened!
