American Airlines announced on Monday it will raise money for Stand Up to Cancer by offering the opportunity to include a friend or family member’s name on one of its planes with a donation of $25.

The intent of the campaign is for the donor to add the name of a cancer survivor, someone who is currently fighting cancer, or someone who lost the battle with cancer to the name of an Airbus A321 aircraft that will be wrapped in a special design that includes all of the names.

“Every family in America has a cancer story, my own family included,” said Stand Up to Cancer Ambassador country music singer Tim McGraw, who added that he was “honored to lend my voice to this campaign to help create a world where all cancer patients can become long-term survivors and have more time with the people they love.”

Stand Up To Cancer works to raise money that speeds research in the field in order to get new treatments to patients as quickly as possible.

The airline  previously supported the group with a large cash donation and an Airbus A321T with a 50-foot-long(15.25-meter-long) overlay featuring researchers in the field and four American Airlines employees who are cancer survivors.

The plane-naming campaign started July 1 and donations can be made by clicking here.
