We want people all over the country to rise up and say, 'ENOUGH!'

"Tune in on Sept. 10th to see your favorite stars, who'll ask, 'Will you stand up with us?'

Person by person, saying 'yes' moves us toward a goal completely within our grasp: a world without cancer.

A donation of any size brings scientists one step closer to a cure," Ziskin said.
