Still Standing Up to Cancer

Just over a week ago, all three major networks simultaneously broadcast Stand Up to Cancer. The organization has raised $100 million since its inception and the funds will go directly to funding research programs to fight this deadly disease. Documentary film maker Errol Morris made this three minute video that captures surprising and surprisingly moving moments about how cancer has affected people's lives.

Maybe Lance Armstrong's return to bike racing will help raise even more funds for cancer research, but you can still donate to the cause at the Stand Up to Cancer website. Having friends and family that have succumbed to this disease, I can't watch this clip without crying. How about you? If you feel up to it, please share how cancer has affected your life.

Hopefully, we will continue to Stand Up, realizing that the organization is not a one-time event but a daily movement. Please continue to Stand Up.

i actually went online to cafe press to get a few shirts for myself and my family - so that was how i donated. i don't really have extra money to give but i wanted to participate, and i figured that this was a good way to get a few people involved even if it's just a few dollars...

My dad is currently going through chemo for a germ cell cancer ... which started as testicular cancer that was treated with radiation therapy three years ago ... but migrated through his blood stream and lodged itself in his chest. Now he has to be treated for that and be retreated with chemo for the testicular cancer because my dad's previous doctors treated him incorrectly. We found out the end of May around Memorial Day ... and have been dealing with it all summer.
