Ellen Pompeo Stands Up To Cancer

Ellen Pompeo Stands Up To Cancer

Ellen Pompeo keeps it chic in a Michael Kors jacket as she helps launch American Cancer Society‘s ”Choose You” campaign in NYC’s Times Square on Tuesday (May 4).

“1 in 3 women will get cancer and 50% of all cancer deaths could be prevented by early detection,” the 40-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress shared. “I had to get involved because it’s such a common sense, simple thing. We have to eat right, exercise, and get early screenings. And stop smoking!”

Ellen added, “My daily schedule is quite hectic, but I have to put my health first in order to be the best mom and wife I can be” (She has a 7-month-old daughter Stella Ivery.)

FYI: Ellen is the daughter of a cancer survivor!

    I met her! She was a total doll, so sweet and kind. She took the time to come over and take a picture and say hi even though she had to rush over here. Such a lovely women and her “crew” had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. She looks even more gorgeous in real life. I watched her during this conference and it was wonderful to hear her speak so passionately about such a great cause!

  • Call Jenny (fed up husband)

    How do celebrity moms get back into shape so quickly after giving birth? I know women with three year old kids who are still fat and still blame the baby weight. This is why new fathers cheat. Fat new mothers are lazy and sloppy and don’t care anymore once they have children.


    Shes perfect


    thank you for supporting such a GREAT cause Ellen you are truly Amazing.
