Sheryl Crow and Dr. Kristi Funk: Early Detection Advocates
Singer Sheryl Crow and Dr. Kristi Funk, the surgeon who diagnosed Sheryl's breast cancer in 2006, are teaming up to save lives.
Crow, who shared her breast cancer survival story with other cancer victims, has become an advocate for early detection.
Dr. Funk's charity, Pink Lotus Petals, is a Los Angeles based nonprofit that provides free screening, diagnosis, surgical treatment and post-surgical treatment to women who are medically uninsured and are unable to pay for such care due to financial hardship, socio-economic circumstances and other emergencies.
Pink Lotus Petals believes that saving women today is just as critical as searching for a future cure. Every woman deserves a right to treatment, regardless of socio-economic status or financial condition.
