When we stand up, we save lives.
Daniel Mays has joined the stellar lineup of those supporting Stand Up To Cancer.
Watch the film here.
Daniel Mays said “Stand Up To Cancer is an incredible campaign that I am proud to be part of this year. This film shows the difference we all can make when we take a stand – now is the time to Stand Up together to tackle this relentless disease. Researchers and scientists are making progress in the labs every day – let’s keep standing with them until we can banish cancer to the history books.”
A stellar line-up, including Daniel Mays, David Oyelowo, Paralympian Amy Conroy and actors Dame Harriet Walter, Jason Watkins, and Kadiff Kirwan have joined forces in a thought-provoking short film for Stand Up To Cancer.
Marking the return of the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, the film highlights the positive change which can be achieved when humanity stands up for what it believes in. The famous faces appear alongside cancer patients, their loved ones, and medical staff as they call upon the nation to Stand Up To Cancer.
The film, produced by Nonsense London, opens with Kadiff Kirwan watching footage of Black Lives Matter protests and a woman following the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme. It then cuts to David Oyelowo reflecting on how standing up “builds community, changes history and shapes the future.”
