Former ‘Real Housewives’ of Beverly Hill’s star Camille Grammer was awarded the Public Service Award at the 2016 National Race to End Women’s Cancer from the FWC because of her commitment and dedication to end women’s cancer.
Grammer joined the movement three years ago, serving as the National Race Chair and spokesperson for the Foundation. She captains her own team at the race, called Camille’s Crusaders, raising more than $50,000 for the cause to date.
“I appreciate this Foundation so much,” said Grammer, at the 7th annual National Race to End Women’s Cancer in Washington DC, Nov. 6. “It is such an important cause, raising awareness for female cancers and raising critical funding for diagnostic testing and hopefully a cure one day.”
Three generations of Grammer’s family have been diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer. She is a three-year survivor of endometrial cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and her grandmother had endometrial cancer.
Since 1997, the award has been presented to an individual or individuals who have engaged in extraordinary efforts to support women diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer through programs of the Foundation. Past recipients include Larry King, Barbara Walters, Fran Drescher and Doctor Saralyn Mark, the first Senior Medical Adviser to the Office on Women’s Health.
