Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a groundbreaking movement to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. SU2C enables collaboration among the best and the brightest in the cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort.
The show helps fund SU2C’s groundbreaking approach to translational research, accelerating the delivery of new therapies to patients by getting them from the “bench to the bedside” as quickly as possible. SU2C brings together scientists from different disciplines across various institutions to work collaboratively, rather than competitively. In the U.S., 100 percent of the donations received from the general public go directly to collaborative cancer research programs.
This year alone cancer will claim nearly 8 million lives.
In the United States alone, one person every minute, more than 1,600 people every day, will die of cancer.
1 out of every 2 men and 1 out of every 3 women will be diagnosed in their lifetimes.
Science is on the verge of breakthroughs that can end cancer’s reign as a leading killer, but during the past decade, federal funding for cancer research declined more than 20% adjusting for inflation.
