THE OC star Mischa Barton has embarked on a campaign to raise more cancer awareness, after losing two of her grandparents to the deadly disease.

The British-born actress, 19, is helping the WOMEN'S CANCER RESEARCH FUND raise money, and she's also raising awareness about the way teens can reduce their risk of developing the disease.

She says, "One in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

"If they know about the difference early detection can make now, it'll help them later."
