Actress Emma Stone made a stylish appearance at 2013 Peace, Love & A Cure, a benefit organised by the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation in New Jersey on Tuesday.
Her mother Krista Stone, a breast cancer survivor, was to be honored with the "Courage Award" for what the Foundation called "her brave and inspirational fight against triple negative breast cancer and for using her voice to build awareness and advocate for better treatment options for all patients."
Stone was cast in the role of a special award presenter that night, and was joined at the event by her boyfriend and star of "The Amazing Spiderman", Andrew Garfield.
According to the TNBC Foundation website, "This event helps raise critical funds to further the Foundation's mission to be a credible source for triple negative breast cancer information, a catalyst for science and patient advocacy groups, and a caring community with meaningful services for patients and their families."
Stone, who is a Revlon brand ambassador, and her mother have appeared together in a commercial for Revlon Cares.
"Your lips can save lives", the ad reads.
The 24-year old Stone is one of the many famous faces who have lent their support to spreading awareness about breast cancer. The disease recently became a hot topic of discussion when Angelina Jolie, after being diagnosed with an 87 percent chance of contraction, decided to undergo a double mastectomy as a preventive measure
"I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will know that they have strong options," she wrote in an article titled "My Medical Choice" for The New York Times.
