Jennie Garth’s Balancing Act
The 90210 star talks about her healthy lifestyle, volunteering, and parenting a child with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
You’re also involved with the Red Cross Association. What inspired you to
work for them and what do you do to help?
As a Cabinet member, I lend my name to fundraising endeavors and help bring
awareness to their various causes. As long as I can remember, when hard times
hit, the Red Cross has always been there to help the people of this
country. I wanted to be a part of that, in any way I could.
What health condition or disease would you most like to see eradicated
during your lifetime?
Heart disease, cancer, sudden infant death syndrome. I wish I could wave a
magic wand and make all diseases disappear.
If you had to lose one of your five senses -- touch, smell, sight, taste,
hearing -- which one would you choose?
If I had to lose a sense, I would choose taste. I wouldn't want to live
without being able to see, or hear, or touch my babies. That would be so very
hard. I could live without tasting that cupcake, if I had to.
