Stand Up 2 Cancer

Many of you have asked how you can help. Well, there is a new organization that has been created to find a cure for cancer. It is called Stand Up To Cancer. Some of you may have heard of or even watched the televised program that aired Friday night (9/5). This is an outstanding organization that will bring together experts from around the world to work together to find breakthroughs in cancer research.

Here is some information about the organization from their website:

The goal of SU2C is to raise money to fund the most promising cancer research projects and unite the best scientists who are on the verge of critical discoveries that can provide direct patient benefit in the shortest time possible. SU2C is founded on the belief that currently, in the field of cancer research there is a strong understanding of the basic science of cancer, and with the technologies available, now is the time to take that understanding to the next level by translating this knowledge to the clinic, to real advances in patient care and cancer prevention.

Stand Up To Cancer's innovative approach will bring together the best and brightest investigators from leading institutions across the country and internationally to work in collaborative, multi-disciplinary "Dream Teams" that will pursue the most promising research, accelerating the discovery of new therapies for cancer patients and/or advancing efforts in cancer prevention research. Stand Up To Cancer monies will also be used to support high-risk, high-impact, innovative cancer research proposals which are often not supported by conventional funding sources.
