Kidman launches breast cancer month Friday September 29
Actress Nicole Kidman visited Madame Tussauds to launch a breast cancer awareness campaign.

The Hollywood star stopped traffic as she posed outside the London attraction.

Wearing a pink ribbon, the symbol of the campaign, she urged women to be more aware of the disease.

Kidman, 39, is the face of Cancer Research UK's campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

And the Australian star has personal experience of the disease.

Her mother Janelle was diagnosed with breast cancer when Kidman was 17 and went on to beat the disease.

"As someone whose family has personally been affected by the disease, I can't stress enough how important it is that women get to know and understand what is normal for their body," she said.

"I am honoured to mark the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I hope that this Cancer Research UK campaign will raise awareness of breast cancer amongst women of all ages and encourage them to report any unusual changes and go for screening if they are over 50. Together we will beat cancer."
