OUR WORK

1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. But we can do something about it. 100% of the money you raise for and donate to Stand Up To Cancer will fund translational research. That's right, all of it. This takes developments in the lab and transforms them into new tests and treatments for cancer patients.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN AND WE WILL BEAT CANCER
