"The AACR is the proud scientific partner for Stand Up To Cancer and applauds its leadership group for placing the spotlight on cancer research in more than 75 countries worldwide. The AACR will provide scientific oversight, expert peer review and grants administration for SU2C.
This Friday, ABC, CBS and NBC will air a history-making, live simulcast SU2C television special to raise funds for groundbreaking cancer research. The show will include reports on cutting-edge translational research and performances by legendary artists and celebrities. All the funds donated by the public will support the most promising translational research to bring advances in cancer treatment and prevention to patients as quickly as possible.
Stand Up To Cancer's extensive public awareness campaign features public service announcements (PSAs) in numerous media outlets. SU2C continues to attract artists, international organizations and corporations donating services, promotional opportunities and sale proceeds to Stand Up To Cancer.
Joining the fight is FASHION ROCKS™, a star-studded concert that honors the relationship between fashion and music. Ticket proceeds from the event will benefit Stand Up To Cancer."
