Today a new effort was launched to help facilitate the goal of making cancer a national priority. This is the first of its kind event in the cancer community where all the major television networks have come together to provide a show that will air in primetime on September 5, 2008. The show is called Stand Up to Cancer and it will have an enormous impact on focusing our attention on this disease which ultimately will lead to better outcomes.
Close friend, acclaimed movie producer, and cancer survivor Laura Ziskin is producing this show with many partners involved. Laura is a hero to me and many others and her will and determination are in full force on this effort. Special thanks to Laura, Noreen Fraser (cancer survivor who was instrumental in this effort from the beginning), the television networks and everyone else who is helping to make this a reality.
More details will be coming soon but Lance and the LAF are proud and honored to be partnering on this effort.
