Stand Up To Cancer ("SU2C") is a charitable program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) established by media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders who have been affected by cancer. SU2C aims to raise significant funds for translational cancer research through online and televised efforts. Central to the program is a telethon scheduled to air on three major broadcast networks (ABC, NBC and CBS) tonight. (September 5th)

Katie Couric and her fellow network news anchors, Charles Gibson and Brian Williams, are set to host the show.

Celebrities will share their personal experiences with the disease. Christina Applegate, who recently underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, is among those set to help deliver the message Friday. She'll be joined by scores of other stars from TV, music and film, including Halle Berry, Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Jack Black, Salma Hayek, James Taylor, Carrie Underwood and Rob Lowe.

The hourlong show also will include a performance of "Just Stand Up," a charity song featuring Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Rihanna, Fergie, Miley Cyrus, Underwood and others.

It will also be simulcast on XM and Sirius Satellite radio. Sirius Hits 1 (ch 1), XM's 20 on 20 (ch 20) and XM's The Pink Channel (ch 24).
