Various Sega studios will team up with content creators to raise money alongside Stand Up to Cancer for research programs.


Stand Up to Cancer has worked relentlessly over the years to aid in the research and availability of effective cancer treatment through various charity campaigns. Soon enough, Sega putting its considerable library of solid games to work to aid in that cause.

"We are immensely grateful to SEGA and its talented network of content creators who are turning their passion into action by supporting the cancer community at this time."
