Holly Willoughby, Elizabeth Hurley and Denise Van Outen raise money for breast cancer


From donning pink to climbing mountains, celebrities have gotten involved in the fight against breast cancer. Raising money for breast cancer charities has been an important job for many famous faces, including Elizabeth Hurley, Holly Willoughby, and Denise Van Outen.

Elizabeth Hurley helped kick off this year's Breast Cancer Awareness month events at the Estee Lauder Companies' Hear Our Stories, Share Yours campaign event at Kensington Palace. She has been a part of breast cancer events for a number of years, speaking about the disease all across the world.

Wearing a gorgeous pink lace fitted dress, Elizabeth spoke about her family's experience with the disease. Having lost her grandmother to breast cancer in 1992, the actress and model is a passionate advocate of increased awareness.

In the past the 33-year-old mother-of-three has worked with Breast Cancer Campaign and Hallmark to create the Cards for a Cure initiative and used her role as a presenter of This Morning to encourage others to join her in wearing pink and donating to the cause.

Cancer awareness is already planned to be part of the upcoming series of Surprise Surprise. With Holly's help, and kicking off with a visit from Elizabeth Hurley, This Morning is also working to raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer.


Television presenters like Holly are also bringing the struggle to the small screen in other ways. As a Breast Cancer Care Ambassador, Denise Van Outen has gone far from her Essex roots to raise awareness. She worked with the charity to organise an expedition to Machu Picchu in Peru.

The trek to the remains of the famous 15th century Inca city, which sits a whopping 2,430 metres above sea level, was filmed for a TV documentary. Denise and four of her celebrity friends were joined by six women who had breast cancer. On the journey, the women discuss the struggle in front of them and the struggles they've already faced.
