Nails for the Cause // Stand Up To Cancer

Stand UP To Cancer-nail art+nails+4

Friday evening while watching the Stand Up To Cancer special, I was inspired to create a manicure to share here as a way to become part of the movement to bring awareness to this great charity whose mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives.

Each day about 1600 people in the U.S. die from cancer and that means everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer. For me, it was my dad, who died from skin cancer when he was just 54 years old. Stand Up To Cancer brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community to help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors.

So in addition to donating, I thought I’d paint my nails for the cause as a way to help spread the word {just in case you hadn’t heard of it}. Think of all the people you can help so we can all stand up to cancer together and make a real difference.

Here’s What I Used…
