Some of the stars of ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital, will take part in the third annual American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Hollywood.
Nancy Lee Grahn, Lisa LoCicero and Julie Marie Berman, or as their fans might call them, Alexis Davis, Olivia Falconeri and Lulu Spencer, are all participating in the event on Saturday, July 30, at Helen Bernstein High School.
“It is always a privilege to show up in any way for the American Cancer Society and their noble and tireless campaign to find the cure and prevention for all cancer,” Grahn said. “I show up in the name of all those who have battled this disease and specifically for my friend Doreen Schmitt who continues to beat the odds every day. Please join my team and relay for life, hope and perfect health.”
Relay for Life gathers families and friends to join forces and celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, are battling cancer and remember those who have lost loved ones to the disease. More than 4,000 Relay for Life events are schedule this year.
“Cancer has affected many people in my life and I’m proud to participate in an event that promotes hope and strength,” Berman said.
This event means a lot to LoCicero, as her mother has twice beat cancer for malignant melanoma and stage two breast cancer.
“We’ve been so grateful for the many years of research and hard work on the part of the American Cancer Society that go in to every treatment protocol and touch every family’s diagnosis experience in some way,” she said. “Unfortunately, very few families will remain untouched by this disease. We truly are all in this fight together, and I couldn’t be happier to be able to do my part!”
