The Witcher’s Doug Cockle asks gamers to Stand Up To Cancer in rousing new video

Want to earn money for an incredibly worthy cause by playing games?

Well, Doug Cockle – whose dulcet tones you may recognise from his portrayal of Geralt in The Witcher games – and Cancer Research UK have something to tell you.

This October, Stand Up To Cancer is calling upon gamers across the country to do what they do best: plug in and play games to raise money for life-saving cancer research.

American actor Doug Cockle, who voices the character of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher series via CD Projekt RED, has provided the voice-over for a rousing film, featuring characters from Total War: Three Kingdoms, Judgment, Sonic and EA SPORTS FIFA 20.

"Cancer has touched my own life in numerous ways, including having been diagnosed myself as an 11-year-old boy, and I've witnessed many friends and some family face this beast. Lending my voice to the campaign is my way of beating cancer at its own game and hopefully encouraging action that can help to make a difference.”
Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 that brings the UK together to speed up progress in life-saving research.

More than £62 million has been raised in the UK to date, funding 52 clinical trials and projects involving 11,000 cancer patients across the country.

Research projects include the development of pioneering technology to detect super low levels of cancerous DNA in blood to improve the way we diagnose ovarian cancer, developing a new immunotherapy drug to boost the power of the immune system against cancer, exploring an entirely new approach to treating bowel cancer, and much more
