Stunning actress Jessica Alba was brought to tears at a cancer fundraiser, when the event reminded her of her mother's and grandmother's battles with the disease.

The former DARK ANGEL star, 23, attended the event for the STEP UP WOMEN'S Network in Beverly Hills, California, on 13 November (04), and the experience was so emotional it took her by surprise.

She says, "I know I lost it, but this is close to my heart."
