    Actress, singer, mother, Gooper and wife of Coldplay's Chris Martin -that's Gwyneth Paltrow- will replace the late Laura Ziskin as executive producer of a cancer telethon. Ziskin died of cancer last year.

    Ziskin co-founded Stand Up To Cancer (SUTC), a charity to raise research funds, during her own battle with the disease. The org has had two telethons since its inception in 2008, with A-listers like Michael Douglas, Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry taking part.

    Paltrow, who lost her dad Bruce to cancer back in 2002, will now exec produce.

    In a statement, Gwynnie said, "This broadcast has become a global call-to-action for all those touched by cancer. Like so many people, I know what it's like to lose a family member to this disease, and I'm honored to stand up in my father's memory."

    The telethon airs Sept. 7.

    What can you do to help raise cancer awareness?
