Ellen Goes Pink Today
Today Ellen Degeneres is hosting a special program in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ellen’s own mother is a breast cancer survivor. Sheryl Crow, also a survivor, will be on the show and will discuss preventive tips with the viewers. Christina Applegate will also make an appearance, as her mother is also a breast cancer survivor. (So is my mom!)
Some audience members will chop off their locks and donate the hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths, which will be used for wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. Diane Lane actually donated to this program live on the Today show on July 13.
It’s interesting to hear about this program, as I only knew about Locks of Love – a similar program that “provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss.” Both great programs that do a great thing.
