Gwyneth Paltrow is such a great lady!
She executive produced the whole Stand Up To Cancer initiative where basically every celebrity ever joined together for a charitable cause.
While laucnhign the U.K. version of Stand Up To Cancer she gave a beautiful speech that almost brought everyone to tears… including herself!
"Cancer claims the lives of eight million men, women and children worldwide every year. I lost my father in 2002 and I am all too aware of the impact this disease has on a family. Stand Up to Cancer is a grassroots movement to raise funds for cancer research. On October 19 the fight against cancer comes to town. We have the power to make cancer powerless and perhaps even end it but it takes research and that requires funding. Cancer has taken some of the best among us and it is time for us all to stand up and fight back. I am so proud to be standing up to cancer for my dad."
Excuse us, we gotta go grab a tissue, we just have something in our eyes…
We're so glad that Gwyneth is producing the telethon because it really means something to her, so you know it'll be great.
Hopefully she can get even more money donated to help fight this awful disease.
