The singer helped open the new Breast Cancer Haven center in Leeds last year, and has now been named their ambassador in the lead up to the center’s first Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
“I’m proud to help raise the profile of Breast Cancer Haven,” she said. “I saw how they helped my dear friend and dance teacher Deana Morgan when she had breast cancer and want other people with breast cancer to know they can turn to the Haven for free help and support.”
Founded in 1997, Breast Cancer Haven consists of three facilities in Britain – in London, Hereford and Leeds – offering free support, counseling, information and complementary therapies to anyone affected by breast cancer.
The singer will also lead the Leeds center’s High-Heel-A-Thon on September 27, an event that will see women and men put on their high heel shoes and complete a 1.2 mile course. The High Heel-a-thon starts at Breast Cancer Haven at 2pm and costs £20 per participant. To book a place, go to www.highheelathon.co.uk.
