What do you stand for?

If I've been a bit quiet the last few weeks, it's because I've been obsessed with creating the following viral video for the movement Stand Up To Cancer. My colleagues and I came up with the idea of showing a bunch of images of people holding signs that say why they are standing up to cancer, E.G. For my mom, hope, healthy boobs, whatever their connection to cancer is and why they are tired of this disease affecting their life and taking life. Thus, showing how we are all affected by cancer. After all, no one is immune to the effects.

So that was the idea but next step was getting people from all over to submit their photos. I reached out to a bunch of bloggers asking them to get involved and although saddened to hear of their connections to cancer, I was delighted by how creative everyone was and am proud of the end result. In conjunction to all this we had to find the right song and finally chose Sister by Jennifer O'Connor, which is unfortunately based on her own cancer story.

Anyway, here it is:

Besides me, below are the other bloggers, sites and authors that participated in the video. Thank you!:
If you'd like to get involved you can submit a photo to su2cancer at gmail dot com or check out the Virtual Stand-Up and pass the word. Oh, and of course do not forget on Sept. 5th to watch the Stand Up To Cancer telecast airing on NBC, ABC and CBS!
