Fundraise for SU2C: Create a Meaningful Tribute

Who do you Stand Up for? When someone we know is impacted by cancer we want to do something. We want to show how we feel - about them and about fighting this terrible disease. Starting a fundraising page is a powerful way to Stand Up To Cancer on behalf of someone you know and love. You can get set up quickly to provide everyone touched by their life with a way to stand with you.

You're standing for something important. Although your fundraiser is online, in the real world it builds a lasting legacy. The funds you raise fuel innovative research leading to new treatments.

We make it simple to set up your fundraiser. Fill your page with stories, photos and updates about your loved one. We'll provide templates to help ask for donations - from spreading the word to thank you notes. Read the FAQ ›

SU2C Thanks M'Evie's Kids For Their Ongoing Tribute

"In loving memory of Mary Evelyn "M'Evie" Burke Lyng -- beloved mother, grandmother/Mimi, sister, daughter, teacher, warrior and friend -- who was taken from us entirely too soon. So that others never have to feel the profound loss we feel, and so that her legacy of helping others lives on forever."

Team M'Evie has raised over $12,600 to support groundbreaking cancer research.

Here's Why It Matters: Funding Collaborative Research

Stand Up To Cancer brings together talented scientists and doctors from different institutions to collaborate on Dream Teams.
The goal:  Speed up the discovery of new therapies across all cancer types, and get them to patients.

So far, SU2C has funded 20 Dream Teams, 6 Translational Research Grants, and 46 Innovative Research Grants.

We're getting results. Results like a new first-line therapy for advanced pancreatic cancer. And expedited FDA approval of a treatment for advanced breast cancer. SU2C delivers on its commitment to move promising work from the lab bench to the patient's bedside within three years.   

"It's the best dollar spent in this country for support of cancer research and benefit of patients"
