Kelly Price Joins Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Date:8/3/2011

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Los Angeles County Affiliate, part of the world's largest breast cancer advocacy organization, is proud to announce a partnership with Grammy Award nominated recording artist and long-time breast cancer awareness advocate, Kelly Price.  Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is the world's leader in breast cancer research, awareness, and education.

The Los Angeles County Affiliate has raised more than $8.9 to fund breast cancer programs and research in the last 15 years, which have gone to provide the medically underserved and uninsured populations in Los Angeles County with screening, diagnostic tests and treatments for breast cancer.

Like thousands of women in the United States, Kelly Price was personally touched by breast cancer when both her mother and mother in law were diagnosed within two months of each other with the disease.  Kelly said, "My husband and I have known each other and been friends since we were 13 years old, so when both my mom and mother in law were diagnosed with breast cancer, it felt like an all-out attack on my family.  The news came at the beginning of my career when I was about to launch my very first album.  At a time when my family and I would have otherwise been celebrating, we were gripped with fear and uncertainty.  After a long hard fight, my mom survived breast cancer and my beloved mother in law succumbed to the disease.  This was a turning point in my life.   For eight years now, I have been an advocate for breast cancer awareness and early detection and now I am proud to join forces with the LA County Affiliate of Susan G.  Komen for the Cure® in its mission to pursue a world without breast cancer."

Price will support Komen's efforts by becoming an Official Ambassador for the Circle of Promise initiative.  The Circle of Promise moveme
