“We are eternally grateful for the remarkable support we’ve received from the entire entertainment community. We couldn’t do this without everyone’s help – from the networks and cable channels donating the airtime to our celebrity volunteers participating in the show and a lot of other people in between,” said Sherry Lansing, one of the co-founders of “Stand Up To Cancer.”
There will be live performances from recording artists and information presented by stars meant to educate viewers on cancer and cancer research. The show is set to air at 8 p.m. ET and PT, and 7 p.m. CT.
