Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund
Liz Hurley is an award-winning broadcast journalist who has been a popular fixture in Tennessee Valley television news since 1983. A respected news anchor on WAFF-TV in Huntsville, Liz has long been an advocate for women's health.
In 1998, Liz experienced first-hand "The Biggest Story of My Life" when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease that had taken her mother when Liz was a child. Liz received extensive chemotherapy and underwent a double mastectomy. Her treatment and surgery were video documented so that Liz could encourage women to practice monthly self-examination and to share her experience.
Thousands of women are now better informed about breast health issues, thanks to Liz's efforts. In addition to personally counseling other women who suffer from the disease, Liz dedicates a large part of her time to issues that deal with the education, early detection, treatment and potential cure for breast cancer.
