Queen Elizabeth lands in Charlotte with a message of hope

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Call her Queen Elizabeth. She's not the British Monarch, but the woman who's campaign to beat cancer has energized people around the world. Elizabeth Fallon came to Charlotte today.

Fallon is battling breast cancer. Her idea to sell buttons as a way to raise money for a British cancer facility has gone global. It started with friends, then spread to celebrities. Today she says, she's sent buttons to people on every continent.

An invitation from Charlotte's Susan G. Komen foundation brought Queen Elizabeth to the Queen City. She'll lead the race for the cure on Saturday in uptown.
