What do Gwenyth Paltrow, Alan Carr and mum-of-three Trish all have in common?
They’re all standing up to cancer, and they need your help to do it.
It’s a harsh reality that more than 1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point. But Stand Up to Cancer want us all to beat the odds.
What started as a campaign by the US Entertainment Industry Foundation has grown into a global cause which aims to create new cancer treatments and awareness. And now our glitzy transatlantic friends are joining forces with Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK to bring the star-studded campaign to Britain.
At the heart of it all is Channel 4′s fundraising extravaganza which is bringing the biggest stars of TV, film and music together to raise millions to support the campaign. It isn’t airing until 7.30pm on Friday 19 October, but in the meantime you can get involved by fundraising, buying merchandise and spreading the word all over the internet. What’s more you can also check out the website
for more information. And make sure to watch their brilliant ad
campaign and videos by people affected by cancer and celebrities alike.
Here at Macmillan, we think it’s a brilliant campaign, which we’re sure will inspire millions around the world to stand up to cancer together.
