Actors, musicians, athletes and journalists gathered at the Kodak Theater for the historic Stand Up To Cancer
fund-raising event that benefited the fight against cancer. Jennifer Aniston
joined celebrities like Salma Hayek
, Jennifer Garner
and Halle Berry
to answer calls from donors and inform viewers about how the disease is affecting the world. The one-hour, commercial-free show was broadcast simultaneously on ABC, CBS and NBC and helped raise over $100 million for cancer research. The donations will be facilitating research that can help the 1.4 million cancer cases that the American Cancer Society
predicts will be diagnosed this year.
