Stand Up To Cancer - Tonight!


Posted on: 09/05/2008

Stand up to cancer

 An event Friday night (Sept 5, 2008) focuses on fighting an often deadly disease. Not since 9-11 have all three major TV networks come together in this way.

Celebrities will grace one stage to raise money for cancer research.

It's called Stand Up to Cancer and 72 TV, movie and music stars are involved. They'll all be live at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles to perform, give personal stories of cancer survival and even take donation calls.

The three network evening news anchors came up with this collaboration. CBS anchor Katie Couric lost her husband Jay to colon cancer in 1998, then her sister Emily died in 2001 of pancreatic cancer.

"You know what, this is unacceptable in the United States. We have to protect our most valuable resource which are the humans in this country. We have to give people dealing with cancer more hope." Couric said.

The hour-long commercial-free fundraiser will air at 8 Friday night on CBS, ABC and NBC.

Stand Up 2 Cancer has an exciting new idea on how to speed up the search for the cure:  they have sought proposals to put together "dream teams" of experts in various types of cancer, tied together by patient advocacy groups.  We - The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research & Informaiton, Inc, have proposed 2 exciting projects on brain tumors for them to consider.  The more money they raise, the more projects they fund.   Watch in the audience for people wearing a Musella Foundation T-shirt. Dr Paul Zeltzer and his family will be representing us!
