Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet Opens Up About Mother Jamey Surviving Cancer: 'The Key Is Hope'

Originally posted 05/05/2016 08:00AM

Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet and his mother Jamey are making something good out of one of the most challenging times for their family.

The pair are participating in this year's Ready. Raise. Rise. campaign, which raises awareness of immuno-oncology research by asking people to raise a flag for those affected by cancer. It's a personal cause for both of them, as Jamey survived two cancer diagnoses in 2001.

"When the word cancer makes its way into your life, it can be a devastating moment, like there's nothing can be done. But more than ever there is something that can be done," Eric, 44, tells PEOPLE. "We're making big giant strides and even small steps in making cancer more survivable."
