Photo Coverage: Olivia Newton-John Visits 'Grease' to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness
After the curtain call on the Tuesday, October 7th Broadway performance of Grease at Brooks Atkinson Theater, Olivia Newton-John returned to Rydell High and joined the cast to promote Breast Cancer Awareness.
The four-time Grammy Award winner and iconic star of the film Grease has partnered with CURVES, the world's largest fitness franchise for women, to launch an international campaign to distribute one million units of the LIV AID, a breast self-exam aid that assists women to exercise breast exams correctly, during "Breast Cancer Awareness Month." Newton-John joined the Broadway cast of Grease on stage at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre immediately following the performance and presented a LIV AID kit to every female audience member.
ABOUT THE LIV AID
The Liv Aid is a simple, patented, and FDA-cleared medical device that makes clinical and breast self-examinations effortless and more comfortable. It comes in the form of a heart shaped thin silicone pillow filled with a non-toxic lubricant. The Aid reduces the friction between the fingers and the breast for ease of movement of the fingers over the breast. For more information visit www.Liv.com.
