BENEFITING: *Stand Up To Cancer
ORGANIZER: Entertainment Industry Foundation
In October, I am running a half marathon to help raise money for cancer. This cause is dear to my heart because I lost my Pepe to cancer and my Grandmother is currently battling cancer. Watching a loved one struggle through the pain brings heartache and a feeling of helplessness, so this is my way of helping. Hopefully, with your support, we can increase the chance to save more lives. Any amount of donation is beyond appreciative. Thank you!
Cancer takes one person every minute. One life in a moment. They are our brothers, our sisters, our fathers and mothers, our husbands and wives, our best friends, our children, ourselves. Every day in America 1,500 people die and yet the means to save them are literally within our reach. To wait any longer for someone else to save our lives and the lives of those we love is unforgivable.
Inspired to act by our own personal experiences with cancer, we recognize that we can no longer rely on the current system alone to give us the breakthroughs we need. So join us, take matters into your own hands, and invest in a revolution that will change the way scientists and clinicians work to understand and treat these diseases. Stand Up To Cancer is more than a rallying cry. It is a galvanizing force created to urgently move cancer research forward.
From our start in 2008 we have continued to grow and fund groundbreaking cancer research through our Scientific Dream Teams and Innovative Grant Recipients. New therapies are in our sight but we still need funding to continue to move forward.
This is where the end of cancer begins: when we unite in one unstoppable movement and Stand Up To Cancer. Join us!
