Hill & Mcgraw Honoured For Charity Work

FAITH HILL and TIM MCGRAW were honoured for their tireless work for cancer charities at a star-studded event in Los Angeles on Wednesday (27Jan10) night.
Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon and cancer survivor Christina Applegate turned out to watch the country music couple receive the Courage Award at the annual fundraiser for the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).
MCGraw's father Tug passed away in 2004 after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour, shortly after the Tug MCGraw Foundation was established to help the quality of life for cancer sufferers.
And Hill, who is a longterm supporter of the WCRF, is full of admiration for her late father-in-law's determination to help others.
She says, "Cancer took the life of my father-in-law. He was a brave man during his fight towards the end. His wish was to create an organisation that provided a better way of life for cancer patients and money towards research."
MCGraw adds, "I grew up with my mom and two sisters and now I have a house full of women, my wife and my three daughters, so anything that advances the research for cancer and advances the chances of finding cures, I'm all for."
Swift performed at the lavish ceremony - and admits she felt compelled to take part in the charity fundraiser because of her personal experiences of the disease.
She adds, "Being a part of this cause means a lot to me because my family's been touched by cancer several times. To be here raising awareness for early detection is very important and I've heard they're going to be raising close to $2 million tonight - it's inspiring."
