TV Personality, Cancer Survivor Camille Grammer Will Raise Awareness About “Below the Belt” Cancers at the National Race to End Women’s Cancer 11/2 

(Washington, D.C.) – Camille Grammer, Housewife of Beverly Hills and one-year survivor of endometrial cancer, lends her voice and celebrity to raising awareness about gynecologic cancers by participating in the National Race to End Women’s Cancer on Sunday, Nov. 2 in Washington, D.C.

Grammer, a TV personality and gynecologic cancer advocate, will lead her team  – Camille’s Crusaders — and will speak at the National Race, the Foundation for Women’s Cancer’s major annual event.

“I am excited and honored to help raise awareness about below the belt, gynecologic cancers,” Grammer said. “It’s time to focus on our other lady parts – to help save women’s lives.”

Grammer is the third generation in her family to have a gynecologic cancer; her grandmother had endometrial cancer also, while her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 47.

“I am raising awareness in honor of my mother, Maureen Donatacci, who continues to battle her cancer. I want women to learn the symptoms and listen to their bodies, to get an early diagnosis and the best care possible,” Grammer says. “Women should be treated by a gynecologic oncologist as I was; these surgeons specialize in treating reproductive cancers and have the best outcomes.”

Grammer will speak to other survivors, sponsors, donors and surgeons at a Foundation for Women’s Cancer event on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 7:00 pm at the W Hotel. She will also speak and then run the 5K National Race to End Women’s Cancer Sunday morning at 9:00 am on Freedom Plaza.
