Britney Spears and her family were on-hand for the Rally Against Cancer at Summit Hospital in her home state of Louisiana on Sunday (March 2). The hospital and the singer’s Britney Spears Foundation co-hosted the cancer screening and awareness fair in Baton Rouge.
“This is something my heart has to do,” Spears told the hundreds of people gathered for the event, which was designed to promote the need for preventative measures such as early cancer-detection screenings. The singer spent much of her time there signing autographs for her fans.
Spears is currently in the process of recording her fourth studio album for Jive Records, which will be the follow-up to her 2001 self-titled release.
