This year, EIF has partnered with mGive to give viewers and supporters the ability to easily donate to this crucial research with a simple text message. Supporters can text the word STAND to 40202 to donate $10 to Stand Up To Cancer, knowing that 100% of donations will go toward collaborative cancer research.

In 2008, the Stand Up To Cancer event helped raise over $100 million; but there is still so much to be done...  Please text STAND to 40202 to donate $10 and visit http://su2c.standup2cancer.org/ for more information.
