Ron Artest, a forward for the Los Angeles Lakers, said that he wasn't interested in joining "Dancing With The Stars" until his 8-year-old daughter Diamond reminded him of a good cause.

"When I was first had the opportunity to do 'Dancing With The Stars,' I wasn't going to do it but my daughter said 'Daddy, you should do it,'" Artest told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "She had cancer when she was four, so I said, 'Okay, how about I just dance for cancer?' So, all of my profits are going to go to cancer research."
