For the 2nd year in a row, AMP Radio has partnered with Stand Up To Cancer to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to our listeners through our month long campaign, Pink For October. It is important to us that we not only give you fun and engaging ways to get involved with the cause, but that we also introduce you to the great people working with us. Today we introduce you to Stand Up To Cancer.
Since their launch in 2008, over $180 million has been pledged to Stand Up To Cancer to fund collaborative cancer research.
While we could go on all day about how much we love this organization, we think it’s best to give you some highlights about them from their website.
Stand Up To Cancer raises awareness and funds to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. SU2C brings together the best and the brightest in the cancer community, encouraging collaboration instead of competition. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort.
Where Your Donations Go:
We are at a pivotal moment in time, when scientists believe they have — at last — both the knowledge and the technology to make critical breakthroughs in the struggle against cancer.
Two key ingredients are needed to facilitate these breakthroughs: additional funding and new ways for researchers at different institutions to work together. That’s what Stand Up To Cancer was designed to bring about.
