During the show, viewers will be immersed in first-hand stories featuring families who have been impacted by cancer. These moving stories will share the journey of an 11-year-old boy with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a woman who has lived with pancreatic cancer for 10 years, and a woman with multiple myeloma whose husband was driven to participate in a SU2C clinical trial because of his wife’s diagnosis.

The week-long fundraising initiative will feature live streams, inspirational patient stories, and a dance challenge by pediatric cancer patient and dancer Orli Halpern.
