For the first time we can envision the possibility of stopping cancer in its tracks.

But just when science is on the verge of giving us the breakthroughs that can end cancer,
the will and the funding to do so are disappearing from the national agenda and from our collective consciousness.

Cancer takes one person every minute. One life in a moment.

They are our brothers, our sisters, our fathers and mothers, our husbands and wives,

Our best friends, our children, ourselves.

Every day in America 1500 people die and yet the means to save them are literally within our reach.

To wait any longer for someone else to save our lives and the lives of those we love is unforgivable.

Inspired to act by our own personal experiences with cancer,

We recognize that we can no longer rely on the current system alone to give us the breakthroughs we need.

So, we are calling on the public to help take matters into our own hands, investing in a revolution

That will change the way scientist and clinicians work to understand and treat these diseases.

Stand Up To Cancer is more than a rallying cry. It is a galvanizing force created to urgently move cancer research forward.

This is where the end of cancer begins: when we unite in one unstoppable movement and:

Stand Up To Cancer.
