Today is the day for the big Stand Up To Cancer show, at 8pm EST and PST on NBC, ABC and CBS. This is a big day – the first day in the rest of our lives – in that we are making a commitment to rid this planet of Cancer. There have been lots of discussions on politics in the last few days, but Cancer attacks Democrat and Republican, working and jobless, young and old, rich and poor, American and citizen of the world.
This effort, to fund great projects with potential, that perhaps don’t fit the critiera of the drug companies who are making sure we have cures for ED and stomach aches.
I’m standing up for my mother-in-law who survived Breast Cancer, for my cousin who survived Hodgkin’s, for the little girl across the street who, thank god, we just learned is cancer-free after 15 months of treatment at Memorial (and at age 3!). I’m standing up for my wife’s cousin, who his wife and 2 kids lost to Cancer at 35. Cancer kills, and it’s time we kill Cancer.
