Sheryl Crow cancer center opens in L.A.
Singer battled cancer in '06, hopes to encourage awarenessOn Tuesday, Los Angeles welcomed the grand opening of the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center, a state-of-the-art facility for the detection of breast cancer, reports Us Weekly.
The project is part of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, the country's first complex dedicated exclusively to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
Crow battled breast cancer in 2006, and the new project is part of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, which was founded by Dr. Kristi Funk, who performed surgery on the 48-year-old singer following her cancer diagnosis.
"Joining forces with the Pink Lotus Breast Center has provided me with a wonderful platform to create awareness and encourage the millions of American women over 40 to get their annual mammogram," Crow, who is now cancer-free, said in a press release.
