Dear Friends,

I took my kids to Dodger Stadium to watch them get womped on by the Cardinals on Saturday. It brought tears to my eyes as I remembered how big Dodger Stadium is. It seats 50,000 people. That is the same number of beautiful, American men and women that die EACH YEAR due to colorectal cancer.

I believe we can find a cure and found this noteworthy and hope you feel encouraged about this too!

"Stand Up to Cancer" on Sept. 5
ABC, CBS and NBC have set aside a prime-time hour on the Friday after Labor Day to simulcast a fundraiser for cancer research.

"Stand Up to Cancer" on Sept. 5 will feature musical performances and celebrity appeals, although no guests were immediately announced Tuesday. The rare simultaneous broadcast is reminiscent of a benefit for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that was shown on many networks weeks later.

Hoping and praying for us all!!!

Jennifer
