Please join me and Toby Keith as we Stand up to Cancer

I'm going to take an educated guess here and assume that each and every one of us has a story about losing a loved one to cancer. I have many, but the one that affected me the most was losing my mother. She was only 55 years old when she lost her battle with breast cancer. This was 15 years ago and although great strides have been made, there is still NO CURE for this deadly disease.

If you're a fan of country music (and even if you're NOT) - Toby Keith will be performing at the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday, April 18 at 7 PM Central/8 PM Eastern to benefit Stand Up to Cancer and Lifting Lives (the charity of the ACM). Toby will be performing his song “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song)” live on the ACMs as a tribute to his friend, Wayman Tisdale, who passed away on May 15, 2009 due to complications from bone cancer.

Please join me and support raising awareness of Toby’s tribute to Wayman on the ACMs on April 18, 2010, as well as of the Stand Up to Cancer team that Toby has created to raise funding for cancer research in Wayman’s honor. Team Toby for Wayman, as a SU2C team, is a way for fans and everyone with a common interest or stake in the fight against cancer to rally as a collective force. By joining together, we can make a huge difference.

If you or someone you know has been touched by cancer, I'm personally asking that you consider joining #TeamTobyforWayman, as well as sharing it with your readers, just as I am:

If you’d like to tweet about it to help raise awareness, just use the hashtag #TeamTobyKeith or #TeamTobyforWayman

Finally, if you are a big fan of the song “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song),” every purchase of the live performance at the ACMs will be 100% donated to cancer research, so click here if you are interested in pre-ordering on iTunes:

Thank you
