Media Advisory: September 2, 2008: Breastcancer.org Serves As Stand Up To Cancer Resource


Breastcancer.org, the No. 1 online resource for breast cancer and breast health information, has joined advocates nationwide in support of Stand Up To Cancer. This unprecedented initiative culminates this week with the collaboration of ABC, CBS, and NBC in a primetime broadcast Friday, Sept. 5 (8 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. PT) to raise funds for cancer research.

“Awareness is crucial to preventing and curing cancer, just as prevention and early detection are crucial to conquering breast cancer,” says Marisa C. Weiss, M.D., Breastcancer.org founder and president. “We champion Stand Up To Cancer’s efforts to help conquer the devastation that is cancer.

“Breastcancer.org is honored to be a named resource and educational outreach partner of Stand Up To Cancer,” says Dr. Weiss.
