Elizabeth Hurley and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted: Updated:
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For the past 19 years, supermodel and actress Elizabeth Hurley has been spreading the message to women and their loved ones: 'know your body' and 'get screened.'

In the nearly two decades of raising money to fund research for a cure, Hurley says enormous strides have been made.

"A massive amount has changed. When Evelyn Lauder started the campaign she said to me women all around the world are dying and nobody is taking about it. Now, everyone is talking about. We are moving the campaign to action. More women are going to their doctors early and more women are surviving it," said Lauder.

A diagnosis of breast cancer is no longer a death sentence, adds Hurley.

You can meet the stunner and learn more about Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at Bloomingdale's on 57th St. in Manhattan at 6 p.m.
