General Hospital ladies Nancy Lee Grahn, Lisa LoCicero and Julie Marie Berman will take part in the third annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Hollywood at Helen Bernstein High School, 1309 N. Wilton Place on July 30 at 9:30 AM PST. The co-stars have "virtual" relay teams to raise money for those suffering from the disease. Grahn stated:
It is always a privilege to show up in any way for the American Cancer Society and their noble and tireless campaign to find the cure and prevention for all cancer. I show up in the name of all those who have battled this disease and specifically for my friend Doreen Schmitt who continues to beat the odds every day. Please join my team and relay for life, hope and perfect health.
The American Cancer Society will always be a deeply meaningful group to me and my family as my mother Bobbie is a cancer survivor not once but twice, having been successfully treated for both malignant melanoma and stage 2 breast cancer. We've been so grateful for the many years of research and hard work on the part of the American Cancer Society that go in to every treatment protocol and touch every family’s diagnosis experience in some way. Unfortunately, very few families will remain untouched by this disease. We truly are all in this fight together, and I couldn't be happier to be able to do my part!
According to Berman:
Cancer has affected many people in my life and I'm proud to participate in an event that promotes hope and strength.
