10-11-12! Our Tribute Dinner is around the corner and this year weâ€™re honored to welcome guest speaker, Scott Burton. With Scott in our midst, this evening is sure to be anything but stuffy. Scott is an author, comedian, world-class juggler, and cancer survivor.
Scott shares his story internationally. With refreshing honesty, experienced stand-up and world-class juggling, Scott breaks convention by crafting a comedy routine â€“ laced with joy and passion â€“ of his personal battle with cancer. A veteran of hundreds of shows since his diagnosis, Scott erases the mystique and fear of chronic disease. His audience soon sees that his is not simply a story about cancer. It is the story of life. And in every life there is humor and joy to embrace.
Having been there, Scott believes the gift of laughter helps cancer survivors (or those facing any trial in life) feel normal and see their lives as precious. Scott says, â€œI felt, and still do, that each moment laughing is a moment you are â€“ if only for a second â€“ in love with life.â€
We invite you to join us at the Tribute Dinner on October 11, 2012 as we celebrate life and pay Tribute to some very special people in our cancer community.
