halle berry golfHalle Berry, who took up the game of golf not too long ago herself, has teamed up with the Callaway Golf Foundation to serve as "ambassador" in the fight against ovarian cancer. The news release states:

Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry has joined forces with the Callaway Golf Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation as the 2008 ambassador for the Callaway Golf Foundation Women’s Cancer Initiative. Berry will be featured in an extensive print public service announcement campaign this summer aimed at raising awareness and funds to help find a cure for ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer afflicts more than 22,000 women in the United States each year and claims the lives of more than 15,000. "As a daughter and a new mother, I was shocked to learn the facts about ovarian cancer," said Berry. "That’s why I’ve teamed with the Callaway Golf Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to educate women about taking care of their health."

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
