We don’t see much of Ellen Pompeo anymore, probably because she’s so busy lately taking care of her 7 month old daughter Stella Ivery. But she left her cozy hole this week to attend the latest American Cancer Society event in New York City.
The event, which Pompeo helped launch, is a new campaign named Choose You, and it had a very successful kick off on Times Square yesterday, with the attendance of numerous NYC personalities and national celebrities.
The 40 year old Grey’s Anatomy actress said when taking the stand:
1 in 3 women will get cancer and 50% of all cancer deaths could be prevented by early detection. 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!
