‘I won’t give up until women stop dying’: Elizabeth Hurley, 57, detailed her fight to stop breast cancer on Loose Women on Thursday as she urged women to be self-reliant -check for disease

The 57-year-old has been an Estee Lauder breast cancer campaign ambassador for 27 years – joining the company after losing her own grandmother to the disease.

And while speaking with panel Kaye Adams, Brenda Edwards, Carol McGiffin and Nadia Sawalha, Elizabeth explained her reasoning for having such a strong affinity with the brand.

She was approached by Estee Lauder’s daughter-in-law, Evelyn, in 1995, who asked her to help with the campaign as a global ambassador.

And recalling her own experience of losing her grandmother to breast cancer, the actress explained that she “didn’t know what was going on” at the time.

She explained, “At the time, I had just lost my grandmother to breast cancer and at that time nobody was talking about it. There was no pink ribbon or awareness month. My grandma didn’t go to the doctor because she was scared and embarrassed, so it was quite advanced.

“And even then nobody talked about it, we didn’t talk to the doctors, there were no support groups, we didn’t know what was going on. She didn’t, and that’s what Evelyn Lauder wanted to change when she launched the campaign.

“It’s different now, it’s still a life-threatening condition for many women, but times have changed, we’re talking about it now.”

Panelist Kaye added: “They wouldn’t even say the word cancer back then!”

‘No, they whispered it. It was a dirty word, Elizabeth agreed.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Elizabeth also wore a bright pink shirt for the appearance.

Urging women to check their breasts themselves, the beauty explained how beneficial it can be as she remembered helping two of her friends realize they had cancer by self-checking.

Elizabeth shared: “During the pandemic, thanks to our breast cancer campaign, I made a post on Instagram explaining to people the importance of self-checking. And two of my friends had seen my post and they were in their 40s so they checked themselves and both found bumps and they were cancerous – but they were fine because they found it early.

Adding that “early detections save lives”, the actress added that she even had a mammogram for her 40th birthday and had regular check-ups.

‘I won’t give up [with the campaign] until we are bankrupt – which will happen when women stop dying,” she concluded.

And as part of the special, Loose Women hosted a nurse clinician on the show as she checked her breasts live – as she explained how to check breasts properly.
