STAND UP TO CANCER. Top stars from the worlds of entertainment, sports, science, and industry will come together for a very special night in an unprecedented campaign to stop the scourge of cancer. The commercial-free, one-hour program will air simultaneously on NBC, CBS, and ABC with the goal of raising significant contributions for research, awareness, and patient advocacy. Stand Up To Cancer is a unique 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.
