Kim Kardashian wants to help you keep your lady parts safe. The newly-engaged reality star is starring in a new video to help women recognize the signs of ovarian cancer. The disease claims about 13,850 lives in the United States each year, according to the non-profit foundation Ovations. Sadly, most of the nearly 22,000 women diagnosed in the U.S. each year are in more advanced stages of the disease.
“Last year I teamed up with Kelly Ripa for Super Saturday on QVC, an amazing shopping event that raises awareness and money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and this year we’re teaming up again to support the great cause!” Kardashian wrote on her blog.
“There are so many women affected by Ovarian Cancer each year, and it’s important that we raise awareness. I love working with Kelly, and I can’t wait for the event.”
Kardashian is also on board for QVC Presents Super Saturday Live on July 30 at 2 p.m., with net proceeds benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
The exclusive sale, which was previously only available to the Hamptons’ tastemakers and celebrities, will reach QVC’s more than 98 million U.S. households, allowing shoppers throughout the country to get designer styles at half the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Score.
