Jake Gyllenhaal fronts cancer campaign

London: Actor Jake Gyllenhaal has teamed up with America`s Major League Baseball (MLB) organisation for a new cancer campaign.

The `Brokeback Mountain` star has filmed a public service announcement (PSA) in association with MLB to highlight the work of the Stand Up To Cancer charity, a news website reported.

In the video, shot at a baseball stadium, Gyllenhaal says, "In baseball miracles can happen when a team works together. The same is true with the fight against cancer - that`s why MLB has teamed up with Stand Up To Cancer. Because we believe that when we all stand up together we can make cancer history. This is beyond a dream. Stand up with MLB at standup2cancer.org."

The PSA was broadcast during the MLB All-Star game in California, at which officials held a minute`s silence in honour of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, who died earlier on Tuesday, aged 80.
