Alicia Keys and Stella McCartney launch breast cancer awareness campaign

United States singer, Alicia Keys, and fashion designer, Stella McCartney, have launched a new breast cancer awareness campaign aimed at African American women who have much higher mortality rates than white women.

The British designer, whose mother Linda died of breast cancer in 1998 aged 56 says she will give a percentage of the proceeds from a new pink lingerie set to the Memorial Sloan Breast Examination Center in Harlem which provides free testing in New York City.

According to her, some of the money raised will also go to the Linda McCartney Centre at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in Britain, which helps cancer patients and their families.
