Stand Up to Cancer Named May Charity by Girlfriends Films Executive Assistant Dory

Girlfriends Films’ May Charity is Stand Up to Cancer (, as select- ed by Executive Assistant Dory. The well-known charity, formed by the Entertainment Industry Foundation and championed by many Hollywood celebrities, will receive a check for $1,000 on behalf of Dory.
“Cancer has affected me and my family’s lives, in a huge way,” reveals Dory. “In the past three years, I have had four family members die from different types of cancer. My cousin is thankfully in remission, though it has already come back twice.”

“It has been an extremely sad and difficult time – we barely have time to mourn one loss before someone else is diagnosed,” says Dory. “This is why I’m grateful to Girl- friends Films for the opportunity to contribute towards finding a cure. Stand Up to Cancer is a great charity, helping to make a difference.”

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innova- tive cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. SU2C is bringing together the best and the brightest researchers and encouraging col- laboration instead of competition among the entire cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort.

Each month, Girlfriends Films turns to its employees, performers, directors, and adult industry principals to select a charity to support. In 2013, the Girlfriends Films Char- ity Program donated over $20,000 to a wide array of philanthropic organizations, from medical institutes to animal sanctuaries.
