About Stand Up To Cancer Canada:
EIF Canada was founded by the United States-based Entertainment Industry Foundation, and was established to conduct charitable programs in Canada. Stand Up To Cancer Canada (SU2C) is EIF Canada’s main program, which raises funds to support cancer research, education and awareness programs in Canada. Its main activity is the biennial telethon in the United States that is televised by Canadian broadcasters. SU2C’s goal is to “end cancer’s reign as the leading cause of death in Canada by building awareness and educating the public about cancer prevention, and by raising funds to accelerate research that will transform cancer from a disease that takes far too many lives to one that people survive.” SU2C’s research model focuses on identifying the most promising opportunities in clinical cancer research.
Stand Up To Cancer’s “Dream Team” concept brings together researchers from different universities and institutions to share resources and data, and to work collaboratively to advance innovative therapies for cancer. SU2C put out a call for research proposals in 2014, with proposals reviewed by SU2C Canada’s Scientific Advisory Committee. This resulted in two dream teams: Cancer Stem Cell Dream Team and CBCF Breast Cancer Dream Team. SU2C reports that the Breast Cancer Dream Team will receive $6 million over 4 years from SU2C and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF).
