Reality TV star Sharon Osbourne has launched a colon cancer unit at a Beverly Hills hospital to help low-income sufferers get the best treatment.

The wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne won her battle with the disease last year (03), and was so impressed with the treatment she received at the Cedars-Sinai hospital, she wants poorer people to get the same help.

She says, "When I saw people taking the bus after chemotherapy treatment I knew that I had to get involved.

The doctor who cared for Sharon during her recovery has been appointed to head up the new unit.
