Stand Up To Cancer

Don't forget to watch stand up for cancer, as it irrelevant as it is I was a never smoker and I got terminal, in-operable cancer (I BEAT IT THOUGH); my point is if it (Lung Cancer) can happen to me IT CAN HAPPEN TO you TOO, stand up.

What is Stand Up To Cancer?Stand Up To Cancer is a new initiative to raise philanthropic dollars for accelerating ground-breaking cancer research through an unprecedented collaboration uniting the major television networks, entertainment industry executives, celebrities and prominent leaders in cancer research and patient advocacy.
Stand Up To Cancer includes:
A nationally televised fundraising event to air simultaneously on ABC, CBS and NBC at 8 p.m. EST and PST, and 7 p.m CST on September 5, 2008; - an online community for everyone affected by cancer;
A public service announcement (PSA) campaign featuring celebrities and members of the public to mobilize support for the campaign.
What is the goal of Stand Up To Cancer?Simply put, Stand Up To Cancer's goal is to end cancer's reign as a leading cause of death by raising funds to accelerate research that will help transform cancer from a disease that takes lives to one people can manage and live with.
Stand Up To Cancer will fund the most promising cancer research projects and unite the best scientists who are on the verge of critical discoveries that can quickly provide direct patient benefit.

  1. You are a great advocate, Jerrold and proof that cancer can be beat with new approaches and an open mind. I am cheering for you. I start some of the tests for the transplant work-up on Monday. What was the name of your pulmonologist and surgeon out at Stanford. I have doctor friends here in Dallas that want to know. Your fight has definitely touched others!
