The 2014 STAND UP TO CANCER Event Live on Sept. 5th at 8pm

By Jef Dinsmore on Sep 4, 2014 to HBO News


Everyone knows someone with cancer. It is the killer of our times. Mega-dollars are spent on research and treatments daily. One way the entertainment community helps the fight is through the charitable organization Stand Up To Cancer. Once again it takes up the cause. On Friday, September 5 across multiple networks including HBO and HBO LATINO the 2014 Telethon Event will air LIVE. Executive Producer Gwyneth Paltrow will host a star-studded gathering to raise awareness and funds.

The event has occurred off and on as a televised event for a few years beginning in 2008 and more and more major networks are added each time up to the 2014 event that includes 31 networks all broadcasting it live. Millions of dollars are raised to further advances in the fight against cancer that touches one in every two men and one in every three women in their lifetime. If so inclined please tune in and possibly donate.
