Sheryl Crow Opens State of the Art Breast Cancer Center

Breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow is stepping up to help fight breast cancer in the Los Angeles area.

Today is grand opening of the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center, which features state-of-the-art digital screening and diagnostic technologies for the detection of breast cancer.  The new facility is an expansion of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, the country's first complex dedicated exclusively to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Crow herself benefited from the early detection of her breast cancer during a routine mammogram in 2006.

"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," Crow says in a statement.

"Detecting breast cancer early is a woman's best chance at survival, and digital full-field mammography is the gold standard of early detection."

Crow has two adopted sons: Wyatt, 3, and Levi, nearly 4 months.
