Celebrities have collaborated with The Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit women's cancer research organization, and taped a "Word to Your Mother" video e-card that can be sent for free for Mother's Day. Each celeb card spreads a message on the importance of early detection in the fight against women's cancers.

"Taking care of your health is the best gift you can give yourself," Kardashian, 31, says in her e-card video. "So please remember, eat healthy, exercise and get screened."

"Hey, you obviously know who I am. I'm Jason Segel, star of TV and film," the 32-year-old actor jokes. "I've given you a lot of comedy and all I ask is you give me one thing in return. Go make an appointment for your mammogram or pap smear. It's the least you could do for all I've given you. Happy Mother's Day."

Sarah Silverman also took a "funny" approach to her card and says, "Hi, it's me your Jewish friend Sarah Silverman. Happy Mother's Day! And for Mother's Day, do yourself a favor and get a mammogram. Don't just do it because I'm telling you to, but mostly do it because I'm telling you to." Other stars who created e-cards included Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Duhamel, Zach Galifianakis and more.
