Take a Stand Against Cancer
pin it

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 9th, at 8/7pm CST. Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) 2016 biennial telecast will be on every network and most of the major cable channels except Nickelodeon, the children’s channels and PBS.

Why are so many media outlets clearing the deck for SU2C’s fifth, life-saving broadcast?

  1. Each and every one of us has been affected by cancer.
  2. Stand Up To Cancer is one of the most powerful and important catalysts we have in the fight against cancer. One hundred percent of money raised from the public raises goes to support SU2C research itself. Instead of competing for the same research dollars and working in secret, by themselves, SU2C brings the best researchers in the world together to collaborate.

Every person in the world wants to kick cancer’s butt, but in order to do that, we need every single one of us to make a tax deductible donation to Stand Up To Cancer. Here are some links you need to know.

    A friend has just been told that her brain tumour has come back and starts chemo again next Tuesday. Thank you for highlighting such important causes, Essie xxxx

      Oh, Essie! My heart hurts for her and all who love her. She has a tough journey ahead of her and she needs lots of love and support. xoxox, Brenda

    Such a great charity. Thank you for sharing this.

    Glad you agree. SU2C is not a charity, however. They’re the only organization that’s pairing researchers from around the world and then pushing their findings through clinical trial and through the FDA so patients can benefit. SU2C has changed the business and research model for cancer cures.

    I’m certainly glad for Cancer research, but those of us with cancer have the cost of treatment, bills, and loss of work or income. I have reoccurrance ovarian cancer. Just when I went back to work my cancer came back. Disability pays 170.00 a week. My bills are 2000.00 a month.

      Barbara, I’m sorry to hear of your recurrence. I know it’s been a tough blow and the medical bills make things even worse. Sending you my best, Brenda
