Sheryl Crow is teaming up for an initiative close to her heart.
Crow, 57, joined Ralph Lauren’s “Together in Pink” campaign. The singer and others were accompanied by a family member, friend, or fellow cancer survivor. The campaign features Crow, Emmy Award-winning writer and speaker Suleika Jaouad, five-time Olympic gold medallist Nathan Adrian and cancer fighters Tammy Walker and Mimi Argueta.
“My life changed so dramatically after I had cancer. All the things you think about your life, how you think you have everything in your control, it’s just not true,” Crow said in the video above. “Even though I would never wish a cancer diagnosis on anyone, what you come away with and what you accrue — the life lessons, the strength, the perspective — is invaluable.”
Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.
“When someone we love has cancer, we are all affected — husbands, wives, mothers and fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends,” designer Ralph Lauren shared in a statement published by People. “This is our effort in the fight against cancer.”
This October, Ralph Lauren will launch its “Pink Pony” global marketing campaign to raise awareness and money for cancer-related charities and programs. The brand will also release seven Pink Pony-themed podcasts.
