Tim McGraw is standing up to cancer in a big way. He’s partnering with the Stand Up to Cancer campaign and American Airlines to help stamp out the disease.
Tim says the fight is personal: “Of course my dad died at 59 years old of glioblastoma, so that’s a big reason. I remember my mom had cancer when I was younger and a couple of aunts had breast cancer. So it’s been a part of my family and I want to do everything I can to find a cure and find a way for people to become long term survivors.”
For a $25 donation in the month of July, the airline will write the name of someone who has died from cancer or is a cancer survivor on its Airbus A321, which will begin flying in September. 100 percent of the proceeds go to cancer research programs. (People)
