Suzanne Whang, perhaps best known for hosting HGTV's House Hunters and her thought-provoking and hilarious stand-up comedy chararacter Sung Hee Park, will be auctioning off framed topless photos at the benefit auction to be held in her honor on September 24.

Speaking about the unusual works of art, Suzanne said, "Recently, I realized that trying to keep this stage IV metastatic breast cancer secret was literally killing me. So I've created a new act which encompasses my five year journey with the disease. Visual aids have been important in telling my story. Fear of losing a job, losing money, losing lovers and husbands silences women with breast cancer all over the world. So I did an unprecedented topless photo shoot, exposing my deformed left breast, which I have no intention of fixing with reconstructive surgery. I have come to see it as beautiful, with the help of my amazing main squeeze, Eric Schwartz. I burst into tears when the shoot began, but Eric kept repeating "You are beautiful, and you are brave" until I believed him, calmed down, and finished the shoot. I think the photos are amazing. Throughout this journey I have redefined for myself what it means to be feminine, beautiful, and sexy. These images are snapshots of a medical underworld, a record of self-discovery, and proof that it is possible to claim your beauty no matter how you look."

Blythe Danner, Laraine Newman, Tracy Newman, Tom Bergeron, Marianne Williamson, Kelly Carlin, Richard Lawson, Rick Overton, Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith, Dylan Brody, Ken Kragen, Billy the Mime and Eric Schwartz are just a few of the celebrities who will appear to honor and support Suzanne Whang at a Gala Fundraiser and Auction on September 24.
