The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2021 in excess of 148,000 Floridians will find out devastating, life-altering news…they’ll get a cancer diagnosis.
Going through a battle against cancer requires faith, advanced medical treatments, and quite frankly, good luck if you want to beat it. Something else that can help the journey is laughter. I know that may sound strange, but to find the light and levity in the darkest of times is medicine for your soul.
Jack Bevilacqua lost his parents to cancer and as a dedication to them, created Crack-Up Cancer. It’s an event where a group of comedians is provide laughs to cancer patients and families. It’s taking place September 11th at the Straz Center’s Ferguson Hall. It is R-rated and is intended for those who are 16 years of age and older. Funds raised will go to assisting cancer patients in need around our state.
Lynn Rasys is executive director of the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation. She said, “We are inspired by the life-changing support this event has created for so many in our community navigating cancer treatment. Crack-Up Cancer enables those we serve to focus on what matters most — fighting cancer.”
