Tony & Emmy-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth helping to raise awareness for breast cancer

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Actress Kristin Chenoweth is one busy lady. She appears eight times a week on Broadway in "On the Twentieth Century," and recently hosted the Tony awards.

In addition to her acting career, she's also making time to speak out on a topic near and dear to her heart.

Her mother is a two-time breast cancer survivor, and Chenoweth is using her celebrity status to raise awareness about an exam proven to be more effective than traditional screening.
