Are the cast members of ABC's Lost reneging on their promise to shoot personalized video greetings to fans who donated money to Stand UP To Cancer? That would appear to be the case, according to a report on DocArzt.com, which passes on this apology from the charity to fans who won auctions for the videos:

"First and foremost I want to express my sincere apology for the delay on the Lost Stand Up 2 Cancer Event. Unfortunately production issues on the set in Hawaii have had a considerable impact on the show, and we have been informed that the cast will be unable to fulfill the video portion of the Stand Up 2 Cancer benefit."
As a result, the charity is offering refunds to donors, the site reports. Really? Too busy to help out a cancer charity after committing to it? We'll follow up this story to find out what the charity will do about it and whether the producers of Lost have anything to say for themselves.
