DJ Khaled, French Montana and Jhené Aiko partnered with the American Cancer Society to launch its Get #YOUnited Campaign on Monday (Oct. 7). The campaign seeks to spread awareness and fundraising in the fight against breast cancer. The hip hop artists did their part by spearheading campaign teams and designing t-shirts that will generate funds toward ACS.
”Someone near and dear to me was recently affected by breast cancer,” Khaled said in a press release. “I had to step up and do my part to help those fighting this disease. We are all in this together. Let’s make a difference.”
The Father Of Asahd mogul heads the campaign’s Team We The Best.
“I met my friend, Nalie, several years ago when she was battling cancer and did the dance challenge to ‘Unforgettable,’” Montana said, referring to breast cancer “thriver” Nalie Agustin, whose dance to Montana’s song “Unforgettable” went viral. “She’s an inspiration to me, always positive and always smiling. That’s why ‘Thriver’ best describes her. This is my gift to her and the others out there living with breast cancer.”
Montana and Agustin partnered together to create Team Unforgettable.
“I’m SO honored to partner with my sister @NalieAgustin and the @AmericanCancer to support those who have been affected by cancer. Get #YOUnited and join our team by getting your Team T-shit to raise money to fight breast cancer at,” he tweeted, linking to the campaign’s fundraising rise.

Aiko tragically lost her brother to brain cancer in 2012 and launched the Why Are You Not Smiling foundation in his honor. The Los Angeles songstress teamed up with Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond to create her Team Yagi San for the new campaign.
Those wishing to contribute can donate directly to the campaign or purchase team t-shirts. According to the ACS, funds will go toward breast cancer research, a 24/7 support line, free rides to treatment and wigs.
