3 more days until March 8, 2012. 3 more days until the anniversary of Jack’s diagnoses. 3 more days until Comedians for a Cure.
It will be 2 years since the awful night when Jack was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma and for some reason it feels as if so much more time has has passed than just 2 years. Jack went through so much in the first year and a half that it really slowed time down. Now, 10 months post treatment, and that day of diagnoses seems like a century ago. We are so thankful that this year we get to celebrate Jack’s survival and not morn over the fact that he has cancer. This year we get to go to bed that night knowing that we made a difference in the world of childhood cancer. This year we get to be with people who support our mission and who want to help. We get to be with people who believe in Jack and all of the other children who have and will be diagnosed with this awful disease. This year, Jack’s anniversary of diagnoses will be a day that we want to remember instead of a day that we wish we could forget.
While it is “crunch” time before the event, it is more exciting than stressful. We have been busy putting last minute details in to the event and I am sure it will be like that up until show time. I have been told that many people are just going to buy tickets at the door and that is just fine but I would like to encourage you to buy your tickets online or by calling Stand Up Live before hand so there will not be a wait at the door and so we have more of an accurate count for dinner! Just a little reminder that it is very easy to buy tickets…click on the link at the top of the page or call Stand Up Live at 602-719-6100. If you are buying 2 tickets instead of 1, let them know the code “cure” and you can have 2 for $115.
For those who have already bought tickets…thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you in just a few short days!!!
