Tune in tomorrow night for a monumental television event. All three major networks will simultaneously air this special show. And it's commercial free. I don't believe this has ever happened before .... unless it involved politics, of course.
But this time it's for a much more important cause.There are 1.5 million new cases of cancer diagnosed every year. 559,000 people are expected to die of cancer this year. More than 1500 each and every day. It's the second leading cause of death in the US right behind heart disease. The National Institute of Health states that in 2006 the overall cost of cancer reached over 200 billion dollars.
Anyone whose ever had this horrible disease touch their lives in some way needs to pay attention tomorrow night and Stand Up.
I think that includes all of us. Don't you?
