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).
