Grammy-award winner and breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow opened a breast cancer detection facility in Los Angeles Tuesday at the same cancer center where she received treatment four years ago.

The facility, named the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center, will offer digital screening to aid in diagnosing the most common form of cancer found among U.S. women, according to the American Cancer Society.

The singer, now 48, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 after a routine screening mammogram. She is now cancer-free following surgery and radiation therapy overseen by the Pink Lotus Breast Center, the cancer center that will house her donated imaging center.
