Co-host of "The View" Elisabeth Hasselbeck is joining the millions of people who are fighting against breast cancer. She took some time to explain her personal story about how the disease affected her when her mother was diagnosed during her senior year of high school, according to The Palm Beach Post.
Hasselbeck was able to watch her mother recover from it, but knows that she could also endure the same as her mother did. Hasselbeck also joined the "Do Something Beautiful" campaign to promote breast cancer awareness
"[My mother is] a fighter and I'm just proud to be a part of this campaign with her. I cannot see a better way to honor her and at the same time honor the women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer," Hasselbeck told the news source.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will eventually be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetimes. It is the second most common form of cancer among women, following only skin cancer.
