September 5th is a HUGE Day! Be Sure to Watch!

I have just launched two stars in memory and honor of DeForest Kelley and my mother, Dorothea Smith, both of whom succumbed to cancer (in 1998 and 1999). You can add to these two stars or launch your own. I'll tell you how in just a minute...

On September 5th all three major networks are going to have a telethon-of-sorts for one hour, called STAND UP TO CANCER, to let us know what advances have been made in cancer research and how close many researchers are to finding cures. It'll be a truly entertaining hour
-- not a downer at all -- so please tune in and donate what you can, even if it's just a few dollars, to fund additional research to end the scourge of cancer and save lives.

Brian Williams, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson will all be on hand for the event, as will dozens of stars and other celebrities. In the meantime, go to the event website and launch a star (or add to one) in memory or in honor of a loved one who has battled or is battling cancer. Here's the link:


We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. It's time to stop it in its tracks.
