@katiecouric: Stand Up 2 Cancer

Since the 2008 telecast, Stand Up 2 Cancer has provided more than $80 million to scientific dream teams who are working together to find answers and someday cures.

This year's telecast airs Friday, September 10th at 8pm. 

But before that, some guests sat down today on @katiecouric to give you a sense of the work being done to battle cancer.    

So what's the difference between the 2008 telecast and this year?  SU2C founding member Sherry Lansing tells Katie that this year, you'll see where the money went. 

Dr. Charles Sawyers, Director of the Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, spoke about how drug cocktails can outsmart cancer. 

You'll also meet Patty Watson, who won the Stand Up 2 Cancer "Up 2 You Challenge."  How did she inspire others to battle cancer? Check out the video here.

And Ethan Zohn won TV's "Survivor," but he's also a cancer survivor.   He tells Katie about the fight for survival after being diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma at age 35.

Zohn also debuts the new Survivor/SU2C buff.
