The American Cancer Society launched its Get #YOUnited campaign on Monday (Oct. 7) in the fight against breast cancer with help from a few celebrity ambassadors to assist in spreading the news and fundraising. DJ Khaled, French Montana, Jhené Aiko and Kristin Chenoweth each chipped in by designing limited-edition T-shirts with all funds going directly to the ACS.
“Someone near and dear to me was recently affected by breast cancer. I had to step up and do my part to help those fighting this disease,” said Khaled, representing Team We the Best. “We are all in this together. Let’s make a difference.”
Montana formed an unbreakable bond with breast cancer “thriver” Nalie Agustin after getting wind of her viral “Unforgettable” dance video prior to receiving chemo treatment in 2017. “I met my friend, Nalie, several years ago when she was battling cancer and did the dance challenge to ‘Unforgettable,'” the Bronx native explained. “She’s an inspiration to me, always positive and always smiling. That’s why ‘Thriver’ best describes her. This is my gift to her and the others out there living with breast cancer.”
Aiko’s ties to cancer run deep, as she tragically lost her brother to brain cancer in 2012. The Trip singer launched the WAYS (Why Are You Not Smiling) Foundation in his memory. Aiko has now joined forces with Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond to rep #TeamYagiSan.
