    Breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow celebrated the grand opening in Los Angeles of the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center, which features state-of-the-art digital screening and diagnostic technologies for the detection of breast cancer.

    The brand-new facility is part of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, the country's first complex dedicated exclusively to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 after a routine mammogram; Dr. Kristi Funk, founder of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, performed surgery on the singer, 48.

    "Joining forces with the Pink Lotus Breast Center has provided me with a wonderful platform to create awareness and encourage the millions of American women over 40 to get their annual mammogram," Crow said in a statement issued to the press. "Detecting breast cancer early is a woman's best chance at survival, and digital full-field mammography is the gold standard of early detection."

    Crow is now cancer free. Her new album, 100 Miles to Memphis, is out now.

    Does Crow's cancer center encourage you to seek out early detection methods?
