Fifth Harmony's Normani becomes Global Ambassador for American Cancer Society

Songstress Normani Kordei, of Fifth Harmony fame, has partnered with the American Cancer Society as a Global Ambassador to help raise awareness about the importance of cancer screening. 

The 'Write On Me' sensation revealed that her own mother, who battled breast cancer, influenced her decision to get involved and in a statement she explained: "I remember seeing my father shaving my mother's head in the bathroom after her chemo treatments; It was so traumatizing [...] Cancer has touched my life and the lives of those I love, and now I'm ready to help all that I can in the fight."

"My mom is my hero, and I wouldn't be the woman I am today without her. I am so committed to this fight. I love the work the American Cancer Society does and being a global ambassador provides me an amazing platform to share my experience and story while growing up, support my grandfather who is currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer, and honor the legacy of my Uncle Norman, to whom I am named after and never met, having passed from lung cancer at the age of 33."

Sharon Byers, chief development and marketing officer for the American Cancer Society, added: "We are honored to have such a strong voice in Normani to help us save more lives from cancer. Her passion and commitment at such a young age is remarkable. In November, Normani visited a hospital with us and watching her interact with patients young and old was special. She has the ability to put smiles on the patients who need that happiness most."
