British actress and breast cancer survivor Jennifer Saunders is to power walk a half-marathon through Hyde Park in London on Saturday night (12May12) in a bid to raise awareness of the disease.
The Absolutely Fabulous star spent a harrowing 10 months fighting the illness, and underwent surgery and chemotherapy before going into remission in 2010.
Saunders is to take part in The MoonWalk London for the Walk the Walk charity, and will briskly step across the open space in a bid to raise money for vital breast cancer causes.
The actress tells Hello! magazine, "I'm doing the MoonWalk, a half-marathon, in Hyde Park on 12 May in aid of breast cancer research. You can sponsor me online."
