Cybill Shepherd leads Amazing Woman Campaign
Actress and singer Cybill Shepherd is taking time from her entertainment career to lead the Amazing Women Campaign, an educational initiative of the National Women's Health Resource Center (NWHRC) about Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). April is National IBS Month, and Shepherd, who was diagnosed with IBS after 20 years of suffering, is encouraging women to seek proper diagnosis and treatment if they think they have IBS symptoms, which include constipation and bloating. The divorced mother of three recently finished a movie called Open Window and released her 12th CD, At Home with Cybill. The Los Angeles resident spent last fall in London, where she completed a sold-out concert run. "I'm planning on doing some theaters around the country and hopefully bring it to New York in the fall," she says. For more information about IBS, visit www.Zwomen.org.
