Whoever says television does not good should read this story:

…A fan of the popular show The L Word has donated $1 million to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation in the name of some the show’s most prolific stars. Actress Erin Daniels who portrays a gay breast cancer victim on the series inspired the anonymous donation.

Daniels played Dana Fairbanks, Hailey’s lover on the show, who discovered she had breast cancer in season three and eventually died of heart failure. The generous donor recognized the realism and truth the actress brought to the breast cancer story line and made the largest private donation to the Foundation ever.

Meanwhile, in other L Word-related news, season five starts this Sunday and lesbian networking site OurChart is all over it. Starting today, fans can view the season premier prior to Showtime’s January 6th event.
