Stand Up To Cancer celebrated 15 years of funding groundbreaking cancer research during our eighth televised fundraising special.
Entertainers from the worlds of film, television, music, and more shared the screen to salute the game-changing work of SU2C’s scientists and researchers, and raised awareness about the continued need for cancer research to save lives now. The telecast will also feature moving patient stories, as well as inspiring looks into the developments being made by SU2C’s scientists.
Since launching in 2008, Stand Up To Cancer has funded innovative cancer research to help make every cancer patient a long-term survivor. We have funded over 210 Canadian scientists at more than 15 institutions and contributed to nine FDA approvals for new cancer therapies to end cancer’s reign as a leading cause of death. SU2C is dedicated to ensuring cancer treatments are available to everyone, including cancer patients in medically underserved communities.
