Cynthia Nixon will share breast cancer battle



Tbdcynthianixon041708 Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon, who revealed this week on Good Morning America that she had a lumpectomy two weeks ago and then had almost seven weeks of radiation therapy, is teaming up with the Susan G. Komen foundation to raise breast cancer awareness.

"As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, knowing my personal risk made me more aware and more empowered when I faced my own diagnosis," the 42-year-old actress said in a statement. "I want to help Susan G. Komen for the Cure educate the 1.1 million women around the globe who face a diagnosis each year."

Nixon will serve as an abassador for the Dallas-based organization and will share her experiences in a series of Web videos. We wonder if they'll work that into the Sex and the City movie, as well.
