Stars unite in film to kick off 2019’s Stand Up to Cancer

first_img“When I was 16 my mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer. She and our family experienced first-hand the devastation it can cause. That’s why I wanted to create this film for Stand Up To Cancer, to show that those who fundraise for life-saving cancer research are every bit as relentless, unforgiving and unpredictable as the disease itself. It is thanks to research that she is still alive today.” Melanie May | 7 October 2019 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 A host of actors including Martin Freeman, Celia Imrie, Tom Felton, Noel Clarke, Neil Morrisey, Nina Sosanya and Adrian Scarborough have joined forces in a short film for Stand Up To Cancer, shot by Ridley Scott Associates.Marking the return of the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, the film depicts the stars channelling the unpredictable behaviours of cancer to beat it at its own game.

Research is the key to making progress, and the sooner we fund more research, the sooner we can find better treatments and cures. No one should have to go through the pain cancer brings.”The film’s creator and director, Ridley Scott Associate Juriaan Booij said: Advertisement  270 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10  269 total views,  2 views today Stars unite in film to kick off 2019’s Stand Up to Cancer [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://youtu.be/9MUaJk8r21g[/youtube]last_img read more
