Kelly Price, star of R&B Divas and a seven-time Grammy-nominated American R&B singer–songwriter, recently spoke with Roland Martin about her very personal relationship with breast cancer on NewsOne Now.
In 1998, Kelly learned that both her mother and mother-in-law had been diagnosed with breast cancer, which would later claim her mother-in-law’s life.
In December 2000, Price donated $250,000 to fight breast cancer to the G&P Foundation For Cancer Research to help with the ongoing fight against breast cancer. Price donated the proceeds from her single “Love Sets You Free” which she recorded in January 2000.
In April 1999, Price volunteered to showcase her fashion designs during a special charity gala and fashion show to help the National Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative raise money for breast cancer education for minority women.
