This is where the end of cancer begins. Stand up to Cancer is a unique, ongoing collaboration between the American Association for Cancer Research and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. It was founded on the belief that there is now sufficient knowledge of the basic science behind cancer - and that technologies are available now that can translate this knowledge into real advances in treatment and prevention.
On September 10, 2010, Stand up to Cancer held its second cross-network, cross-platform special to raise money and awareness with the goal of stopping cancer in its tracks. You can help by donating, volunteering, and spreading the word about this important fight. You can learn more here.
