Some of your favorite GENERAL HOSPITAL stars are coming together for a very good cause. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and actors William deVry (Julian), Tamara Braun (Kim), Donnell Turner (Curtis), Eden McCoy (Josslyn), and Wes Ramsey (Peter) will be headlining two events on Saturday, Sept. 14, in Philadelphia, PA, to benefit the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
“Our GH fanbase is made up of the most loving, passionate, and dedicated people,” McCoy declared. “I can’t wait to meet the ones coming out to support funding for this foundation. We’re going to have a great time!” Of course, the young actress is well aware of the serious cause behind that fun. “In my family we have a strong history of breast cancer,” she added, “and as soon as I’m old enough I’ll be getting regular screening mammograms. My mom gets one every six months, and cancer is something we talk about as a family and worry about just like everyone else. Cancer treats everyone the same — it affects all women equally and doesn’t care if we are rich or poor, famous or not. As a woman, I am at risk.”
The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization created in memory of Sandy Rollman, who passed away in 2000. Their goal is supporting and advocating cancer warriors and achieving “a world without ovarian cancer.” Rollman Foundation Ambassador deVry inspired McCoy to get involved in the event to support the cause. “He’s a great activist, and he’s super supportive in raising ovarian cancer awareness,” she said. “It’s inspiring to watch his commitment.”
The actors will be headlining a special GH Fantasy event starting at 11 a.m. ET at the Helium Club on Saturday, Sept. 14, that will include a Q&A session, autographs, and photo opportunities.
