‘The Nanny’ Star Fran Drescher Talks Her ‘Cancer Schmancer’ Charity | TODAY


>>>YOU KNOW HER NAME.
YOU KNOW HER VOICE. FRAN DRESCHER.
FOR SIX YEARS, SHE KEPT US LAUGHING STARRING AS FRAN ON
“THE NANNY,” A SHOW SHE CREATED. AND MORE RECENTLY, SHE STARRED
AS FRAN LOVETT, ON “HAPPILY DIVORCED” BASED ON HER OWN LIFE.
>>NOW, SOMETHING BIG, TEN YEARS OF HER NONDRAFT, CANCERSHMANCER.
THAT MEANS THAT’S NOT THE BOSS OF ME.
AND I REALIZED THAT THE BOOK WAS NOT THE END, JUST THE BEGINNING
OF WHAT’S A LIFE MISSION. IT WAS A NATURAL THING THAT THE
BEST-SELLING BOOK MORPHED INTO A MOVEMENT.
NOW, WE’RE THE CANCER SHMANCER MOVEMENT.
>>CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S BEEN TEN YEARS?
>>I’M GOING TO BE 17 YEARS WELL.
AND THE ORGANIZATION IS GOING TO BE TEN YEARS.
IT’S JUST AN AMAZING JOURNEY. BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD
PEOPLE. BUT WHAT WE DO WITH IT, HOW WE
GROW THROUGH IT AND WHAT BECOMES OF US AS A RESULT, IS WHAT MAKES
ALL THE DIFFERENCE. AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT, YOU
KNOW, I’M NOT GLAD I HAD CANCER. BUT I AM BETTER FOR IT.
BECAUSE I’VE TURNED MY PAIN INTO PURPOSE.
>>AND ONE PART OF THIS PURPOSE IS THIS CABARET CRUISE.
>>YEAH. >>THAT IS COMING UP.
>>IN THE SPIRIT OF CANCER SHMANCER, THAT IS VERY EXCITING
OR FUN AND MOTIVATING. THIS IS OUR FUN AND MOTIVATING
EVENT. IT’S THE CANCER SHMANCER CRUISE,
RIGHT HERE IN NEW YORK HARBOR. I HOPE THA EVERYBODY GOES TO
CANCER SHMANCER.ORG AND GETS THEIR TICKETS.
>>ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A COUNTRY SUPERSTAR TO SING AT THAT EVENT?
>>I AM. >>YOU CAN BE FRIENDS OF ONE.
>>I WISH. I WISH.
IF YOU — >>I LOVE A CRUISE.
>>REALLY? >>I’D LOVE TO GO ON A CRUISE.
>>IF YOU ARE INTO IT, WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU.
WE HAVE GREAT TALENT. ACTUALLY.
WONDERFUL PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, FROM GREAT SHOWS.
