Cancer survivor Lance Armstrong has taped a special segment to be shown during the Stand Up To Cancer television special.

The clip, taped before a Chicago White Sox-Texas Rangers game, will be part of the one-hour fundraising special that airs September 5 on ABC, CBS and NBC.

“Hopefully it raises a lot of money, which is what we need,” said Armstrong. “But more importantly it reminds people that [cancer] is the number-one killer in this country for people under the age of 85. I like a little challenge and a little fight, but we all picked a very big fight, and a tough fight. So we have to remind people that this will not be easy.”

Stars from film, television, sports, journalism and music will come together for the September 5th primetime television event to raise funds for cancer research, and it will feature live performances as well as filmed content giving viewers insight into cancer.
