Maura Tierney is a supporter of breast health awareness, having given her support to the Komen Foundation in 2005, when she joined her fellow"ER" docs in Ford Motor Co.'s “Tie It On for the Cure” silk scarf campaign. Komen's ads for the scarf, which was designed by Lilly Pulitzer, featured the Women of ER - Maura Tierney, Laura Innes, Sherry Stringfield, Parminder Nagra and Linda Cardellini.
Ms. Tierney was set to star in NBC's new series "Parenthood," due to hit the air in September, but production has been delayed for eight weeks, until more is known about her diagnosis and treatment plans. Ms. Tierney has worked in television, feature films, and Broadway productions. She is a versatile actress, having acted in comedy and drama, and has been nominated and awarded for her film and TV roles. Ms. Tierney would like to be private about her health, but NBC's press release contained wording that apparently caused alarm. The press release said simply that the actress was "undergoing medical evaluation for an undisclosed illness."
