Every time I crashed trying to take a picture, I saw this page link when I logged in to Second Life. Along with it comes a message, "Musicians take a Stand with 4 days of Fundraising for Stand Up 2 Cancer." Hence, I decided to pay a visit to the place.
A fundraising event where musicians from all around the world would play music from 5th to 7th September, 2014 to Stand Up 2 Cancer. The mission of SU2C is "to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translation research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now."
"SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C has set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors."
Stand Up To Cancer is forging a new way to develop breakthroughs that will end cancer. SU2C’s interdisciplinary Dream Teams of scientists, clinicians, technicians and other experts, are hard at work on solutions to the unique problems that cancer presents. The funding is administered by the American Association for Cancer Research, the largest scientific organization in the world focusing on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. Together with Stand Up To Cancer’s “Blue Ribbon” Scientific Advisory Council, comprised of world-class scientists across several disciplines and patient advocates, the most promising projects are identified, mentored, and funded. With knowledge gained from the mapping of the human genome, they can target the genes and pathways that are involved in turning normal cells into cancerous ones. They are on the brink of possessing a toolbox full of new, advanced therapies just waiting to be adapted to benefit patients.
To visit the venue and make some donations, here is your landmark. The place is called, "BS's Bring a friend and stay awhile, The Shore" with Live music, surfing, amusement Park, Stillwaters Meditation, & Cancer Memorial all located at the same place. Or you may donate directly at http://do.eifoundation.org/goto/SLMusic.
While visiting the place, I also found an unusual stop where real life and second life picture slide shows were displayed who are fighting the disease. There is also a memorial of our friend who lost the fight. Our little donation can help someone. With that said I quote, "This is where the end of cancer begins: when we unite in one movement, unstoppable."
