Valisia LeKae is a star. She played Diana Ross in the Broadway show Motown: The Musical. That performance earned her Grammy and Tony Award nominations and a Theater World Award.
Valisia LeKae is also an ovarian cancer survivor and advocate who recently completed chemotherapy. When Valisia first announced that she had been diagnosed I reached out to her on her twitter account. We have tweeted back and forth a number of times and I followed her as she entered treatment. She is an awesome Woman of Teal who has spent many days these past few months raising awareness about ovarian cancer. Please watch the PSA she recently made for Mount Sinai Hospital. (I am having technical issues embedding the video on this page so I hope you will click on the link below and see Valisia's message.)
Thank you Valisia for all you have done and will continue to do to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer. I hope to see you performing on Broadway very soon.
Every Day is a Blessing!
