As part of the new ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ campaign, Tim McGraw is teaming up with American Airlines to raise money for cancer research.
“Every family in America has a cancer story, my own family included. Too many of us have lost our parents, children, spouses and friends to this terrible disease,” McGraw said in a statement. “I’ve been so touched by the stories of the American Airlines team members I’ve met over the past month and I’m honored to lend my voice to this campaign to help create a world where all cancer patients can become long-term survivors and have more time with the people they love.”
For a $25 donation, American Airlines will honor survivors, those currently battling the disease or someone who has succumbed to the disease by writing their names on American Airlines Airbus A321.
100 percent of donations will support Up to Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs.
