Actress Cynthia Nixon, best known as Miranda from Sex and the City, auctioned two tickets to May 12th’s World premier of the new Sex and the City movie, including a return flight to London and chauffeur service to the show. Money raised from the 3-day auction is to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Nixon became an ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure after her own successful lumpectomy and radiation therapy in 2006.

“As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, and a breast cancer survivor myself, I have experienced the disease from both sides. I will do whatever it takes to end breast cancer,” said Nixon.

Komen for the Cure, which was created as promised by Nancy Brinker to her dying sister, Susan Komen, intends to do just that – end breast cancer. It has invested $1 billion in research to date, as well as providing community health programs and raising awareness campaigns.

Nixon says, “One of my main reasons I got involved [with Komen for the Cure] was that I feel like I have a very concrete story to tell. It’s my mother’s and my story, which is be proactive, get your mammograms, don’t be afraid. Luckily, because of Susan G. Komen, and because of all the medical advances in the last 25 plus years, this is a really handleable disease if you catch it in time.”
