Cedric the Entertainer has teamed with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) for a new public service announcement that is aimed to educate and encourage cancer patients to explore treatment through clinical trials. This is the third in a series of PSAs highlighting SU2C’s Health Equity Initiative.
The new PSA has a personal call to action from the comedian.
“My mother’s cancer journey taught me about the value of advocating for yourself and knowing your options,” said Cedric the Entertainer. “Participation in cancer clinical trials is extremely low in the Black community, and I am proud to work with Stand Up To Cancer and take action to address this important issue.”
“We’re honored Cedric the Entertainer has joined us to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of cancer clinical trials,” said Stand Up To Cancer CEO Sung Poblete, PhD, RN. “The incredible altruism of the entertainment community has helped us advance our goal of delivering more cutting- edge research and resources for cancer patients in diverse communities, who need our support now more than ever.”
