Get up. Stand Up. Get your tickets now for The Cancer Beat! If you recognize those lyrics, and are a Bob Marley fan, you will definitely want to Stand Up (and with) those of us with metastatic breast cancer - on October 5th 630-11pm at The Warehouse in Fairfield CT for the 4th Annual Cancer Beat featuring the iconic reggae sounds of none other than ... The Wailers!
The past three Cancer Beat's have been sold out, smashing successes - each one raising a quarter of a million dollars! This is our main annual event and has helped us put over 2 million into MBC research. These funds have been put to incredible use and have led to our contributing to 3 groundbreaking published research papers in just three and a half years!
The incredible Cancer Beat committee is working hard to ensure this is the best Cancer Beat yet, but we need your support and good vibes to do that. What can you do? Easy! Three Little Birds told me that this link is now live to purchase tickets, become a sponsor, or place an ad! Any support is so appreciated and every dollar is matched and goes straight to the research!!
We need to keep these researchers pumping out studies on MBC treatment as fast as we can. I recently started a new chemo/immunotherapy regimen that was approved for Triple Negative MBC in March 2019. The last trial I was on worked for 9 months - just long enough to get me to this treatment - but we all need the "next great thing" to keep coming out and there is only one way to make that happen - by funding research for MBC! So... No Woman No Cry - you can make a difference by supporting this event!
We hope to see you there - or in the ad book or sponsor list! Here is a sizzle reel from last year's event in case you missed it - to give you just a sample of this awesome night!
Remember ... Every Little Thing Is Gonna be Alright!
Thank you all so much for your support!!
One Love, Rebecca
