Stand Up 2 Cancer TV Event, Live Tonight

Just a reminder, tonight at 7:00 pm, Stand Up 2 Cancer is having their telethon.  It will be a star-studded event with an all celebrity telephone bank - it's your chance to talk to somebody famous.

All monies raised goes to cancer research. Did you hear that folks? Research.

It'll be entertaining and you'll see lots of impossibly beautiful TV and movie folks asking for money. And, this time, it's for a great cause.

I heard Maura Tierney will be on it. She was a favorite of mine on ER and she was diagnosed with HER2 breast cancer, did the whole chemo, herceptin for a year thing, as did I. She had a new show recently and was adorable with the short chemo-curl. I really related to her, and I think of her as a sister in cancer; that is, if I had rich, famous, beautiful sister who has no idea that I exist.

(I do have a sister and she's one of the three, and it's not rich or famous.)

Check your local listings, (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and HBO) set your DVRs, watch live and most of all - donate. I will be donating this time around. As I promised, 10% of any money I get from donations to this blog goes to a charity that focuses on research - this year it's Stand Up 2 Cancer. (The rest goes to my son's upcoming college education).

  1. I wanted to inform you that another cancer fighting advocate is up for an awesome opportunity.

    The Keep A Breast Foundation were nominated for a $250,000 Chase Community Giving grant. This youth-focused nonprofit organization educates about cancer prevention, early detection, and of cancer-causing toxins in the environment. The recipient is determined by votes and winning would mean that they could continue their awesome work in education. I was thinking that you can help them get the word out. Thank you!!! Polls close September 19th. People can VOTE here:

    They were so excited about the nomination (and being the T-Swift fans that they are) they made a video parody of Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" entitled "We Are Never Ever Too Young For Cancer." It's super cute! WATCH it here: and be sure to share it with your friends!
