Filed by Lucire staff/May 6, 2008/12.09

Some of the most famous women in the world are lending a hand to celebrate Moms this Mother’s Day and also raise awareness about an important women’s health issue affecting thousands of women each year.
   Oprah Winfrey, Sharon Stone, Courteney Cox Arquette, Faith Hill, Jennifer Garner and Olivia Newton-John have signed on by autographing the Pampered Chef limited-edition Pink Kitchen Gloves (the company notes that these contain natural rubber Latex) and Pink Aprons to raise funds for breast cancer education and early detection as part of the company’s Help Whip Cancer initiative.
   From May 1 to 31, 2008, supporters nationwide can log on to to bid on items signed by more than a dozen famous women, many who are also Moms, including Jane Seymour, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tori Spelling, Meredith Vieira, Melora Hardin, Nancy O’Dell, Samantha Harris and the ladies of The View including Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Auction proceeds will bene?t the American Cancer Society.
   According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer remains the most common form of cancer among women in the United States and every woman has a chance of developing breast cancer. Thanks to early detection through regular mammograms and effective treatment, the ?ve-year survival rate has improved to an astounding 98 per cent.
   In its ninth year, the Pampered Chef Help Whip Cancer national campaign will offer a collection of limited-edition pink products including Pink Kitchen Gloves, Mini Scoop and Measure and the Pink Kitchen Brush to raise funds in support of breast cancer education and early detection programmes. For each product purchased, the Pampered Chef will contribute US$1 to support the American Cancer Society.
