ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO SEE JUDITH’S REVISED SHOW AT THE SF MARSH
PLEASE READ JUDITH’S LETTER BELOW:
Dear colleague, I am inviting you to my solo performance about the journey from being diagnosed with an incurable blood cancer through a stem cell transplant.
Many people respond to devastating news with creativity. I’m Judith C., a Physical Therapist diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma at age 58. I responded in just this way, and created “Welcome to the Cancer Cafe” to serve as a tool to educate medical providers, patients and caregivers.
Originally performed at various medical institutions and cancer support groups, the show garnered momentum and acclaim, and is now a part of the SF Marsh’s “Rising Series,” which showcases and offers rising talent with the possibility of a theatrical run.
Please join me in this excitement on 11/6 at 7:30pm! With your support (by attending and/or sharing the event with your communities), I may reach the attention of more facilities, institutions, schools, as well as the general community, for we all know that it is rare to meet someone who has not been touched by the impact of cancer in some manner.
*Show details are available at www.facebook.com/events/723557784736593.
*Begins promptly at 7:30pm. Run-time is approx. 60min.
*Tickets are $15. Please purchase tickets in advance here.
**All proceeds will be donated to the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic supporting and empowering low-income women with cancer.
With great respect,
