Stand Up To Cancer
Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community.
Traditionally, scientists worked individually on different pieces of the cancer puzzle. Stand Up To Cancer enables scientists to work together in Dream Teams, with members in different disciplines and from multiple institutions, pooling their expertise to accelerate the process of finding better ways to treat cancer.
By galvanizing support from the entertainment and media industries, SU2C has set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors.

Maybe McQueen is an homage to my beautiful husband Andy who died of cancer in September 2011, aged just 39. Losing my best friend, the father of my babies, the man I used to laugh with about something ridiculous on a daily basis, has completely broken my heart. At the same time it has fuelled me to get on with my life, to stop waiting until tomorrow when I feel stronger, happier, clearer or braver and to finally back myself in the way that Andy always backed me.
