STAND UP!

Tonight marks the 2nd broadcast of my favorite television event!

I love this organization because they support groundbreaking research for ALL TYPES of cancer. Their research "dream teams" are working to find the newest, most innovative cures and treatments for cancer. The dream teams that SU2C gives grants to work together in a collaborative environment. They are some of the top minds in medical research. When you give to SU2C, 100% of your donation goes directly to research. Did you read that? 100%! Very few organizations can say that.


While I love a great type-specific organization (Nick and Friends Sarcoma Foundation is my favorite!), I love SU2C because they research everything.  Osteosarcoma took my husband, but pancreatic cancer took my grandfather and breast cancer took a friend.  Cancer touches everyone.  It doesn't discriminate because of race, age, or gender.  It doesn't care how much money you have or what kind of car you drive or the job you do every day. 



Tonight's SU2C event includes appearances by TV personalities, celebrities, musicians, artists, and public figures too numerous to list.  They have all been touched by cancer, and so have I. 


I know I'm making my donation, and I ask that you give as well.  Even just $10 will help the cause of fighting this disease.

I'm standing up.  Are you?
