Stand Up to Cancer


Laura Garcia Cannon:
Laura Garcia CannonIn this season of politics and divisiveness, here is something I think we can all agree on. We need to find a cure for cancer. It is a fight worth fighting.  As I mentioned in a previous blog, I lost my mother to cancer this year so it is very personal to me.  She was the light of the day, the heart of our home, and a beautiful woman with a deep love of family.  She fought her battle with cancer with strength, dignity and grace. She left us too young.

One out of three women, and one out of two men will be diagnosed with the deadly disease, but we are making great strides in early detection, research and medicine.

This Friday night all three major networks NBC, ABC and CBS will team up to stand up to cancer.  The one hour prime time special hopes to make history in the fight against the devastating epidemic. The show will be hosted by the three major network evening news anchors, Brian Williams, Charles Gibson and Katie Couric.  It will also feature starts such as Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Jack Black, Christina Applegate, Sheryl Crow, and oh yeah, me, Laura Garcia Cannon!  Watch for it… and stand up to cancer, Friday, 8PM right here on NBC Bay Area.
