Harnessing the Halloween season and the public's obsession around the mystique of vampires and the supernatural, Cancer Bites has assembled a powerful team of partners, experts and spokespeople to educate the public about the prevalence of blood cancers. Cancer Bites will focus on raising awareness around those most impacted by the disease and creating a broad national dialogue on the importance of funding life-saving research.  Robert Pattinson introduced the concept at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards in his acceptance speech for his "Choice Celebrity Vampire" that was dedicated to the Cancer Bites cause.

Despite the fact that every four minutes someone will be diagnosed with a blood cancer and that collectively blood cancers make up the fourth most common cancer type overall, blood cancer lags far behind other cancer education initiatives on the public awareness scale. Cancer Bites is aiming to change that and has enlisted the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS),  Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation  (MMRF) to help fuel its mission.

For Cancer Bites and the Fright Night Awards, blood cancer survivor and creator/co-executive producer of the FOX Teen Choice Awards, Michael Burg saw a unique opportunity to raise awareness for blood cancer programs and generate broad national dialogue. "Bringing a touch of entertainment and fun together during a time that celebrates Halloween is really rewarding," said Burg. "Our ultimate goal is to rally the public to increase overall awareness of blood cancers."

In addition to voting for their favorite Fright Night nominees, people can show their support by spreading the word about Cancer Bites and blood cancer awareness. The official Cancer Bites website, www.cancerbites.tv, will launch on Halloween. In the meantime, voters are encouraged to spread the word via their social networks to encourage friends and family to vote and to log on to get the latest updates about the campaign, blood cancers and of course, their favorite supernatural celebrities. Fans are encouraged to join the Cancer Bites community on Facebook and Twitter.
