Sheryl Crow has put her money where her boobs are.
The breast cancer survivor opened the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center in Los Angeles today, a facility that features screening and diagnostic technologies for the detection of this horrible disease.
As noted in a press release, this development is part of the larger Pink Lotus Breast Center, the nation's first complex dedicated solely to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of this type of cancer, which Crowe was diagnosed with in 2006.
Said the singer in a statement:
"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."She added: "Detecting breast cancer early is a woman's best chance at survival, and digital full-field mammography is the gold standard of early detection."
Crowe is now cancer-free and making the most of it. She's adopted two sons over the last few years: Wyatt, age 3; and Levi, nearly 4 months.
