An essential part of SU2C's mission is to leverage the entertainment industry in a way that spreads its message and engages the public.

"It was truly inspiring to be part of the 2016 Stand Up To Cancer telecast and to stand beside Mitch Carbon, whose life was saved by participating in a clinical trial," said SU2C Co-Executive Producer Bradley Cooper. "I am proud to return as Co-Executive Producer to highlight the ten years of impact Stand Up To Cancer has made in cancer research."

Following five historic fundraising telecasts, the 2018 telecast is especially significant for SU2C, as it will commemorate 10 years of raising awareness and funds—more than $480 million, in fact—for groundbreaking cancer research that is helping to save lives now. Work by SU2C researchers has contributed to FDA approval of five new cancer treatments.
