American Airlines is proud to announce a $1 million donation to Stand Up To Cancer thanks to the generosity of our customers. Ten days ago American launched a flight promotion whereby American would donate $1 to Stand Up To Cancer for every flight purchased on AA.com during the month of June, up to $1 million.
“Our collaboration with Stand Up is breaking new ground. We were thrilled to engage our team members who have been touched by cancer in the campaign and it clearly resonated with our generous customers,” said Elise Eberwein, American’s executive vice president – People and Communications. “In a world where it sometimes feels as though our differences are highlighted, we share a common goal in the fight against cancer and this $1 million will help bring innovative treatments to patients and fund groundbreaking research.”
Stand Up To Cancer brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community.
“I can’t say thank you enough to the American Airlines customers who made this $1 million donation a reality,” commented John Biegel campaign participant and LAX-based captain who is currently undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer. “When it comes to cancer research every dollar matters; and this donation is going to make a meaningful difference in bringing treatment options to cancer patients like me.”
American is proud to collaborate with Stand Up To Cancer and advance their mission to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
