Denise Richards Offers Lunch Date For Cancer Charity

Actress Denise Richards is giving one lucky fan the chance to take her on a date to raise awareness of kidney cancer.
The former Bond girl is offering to personally fly her guest to Hollywood, where they'll enjoy lunch together, as part of a campaign to promote the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA).
Richards insists the organization is a cause close to her heart after losing her mom Joni to the disease in 2007.
In a post on her blog, she writes, "There is not a day that goes by since my mother's passing from kidney cancer that I don't think of her. I try my best to honor her memory by telling my children stories about what a wonderful woman and mother she was to me. Another part of honoring her memory is supporting the fight against the disease...
"Now here's your chance to help. I created a contest in conjunction with the KCA to promote awareness about the disease and help start a conversation about prevention and warning signs. The winner will get the chance to fly out to Hollywood where we'll chat and have lunch together."
Contestants must film a 60-second clip explaining how cancer has affected their lives and submit videos to LunchWithDenise.com.
