Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure Suicide Club - $10 per ticket with 90% going to Relay for Life of Ruach
Celebrate Atlanta invites all members to a night of Broadway at the Georgia Ensemble Theatre. Tickets while normally $25 to $40 will be $10 for Celebrate Atlanta members with 90% of the proceeds going to Relay for Life of Ruach Atlanta. Relay for Life benefits cancer research, provides support for those that have cancer and support for those of us that have lost a loved one to cancer. In honor of the survivors, while optional, I hope you will wear purple or pink and if you have a cancer ribbon, proudly wear it on your lapel.
I do not need to explain the impact cancer has on people's lives, not only the person with cancer but those that are part of their life, especially family. I myself lost my mother to cancer as a child (I alway wear a pink ribbon on my jacket lapel in support of ending cancer) and thus I am posting an actual letter written by a child about his/her family and cancer's impact. The letter was written in 2011.
First you invaded my mommy’s body you took it over and i hate you. You made her sick and cry in pain for days on end. You made her lose her hair and her eye lashes, you took away her feeling of beauty and youthfulness, you took away our family’s sense of security. But you did NOT take her. she beat you and you came back for my daddy. now he cries In pain and can’t eat without getting violently ill. You turned my daddy my superman, and turned him into a man who can barely walk down the stairs anymore. He will continue to fight you, we all will. Cancer will NOT take you daddy. CANCER, LEAVE MY FAMILY ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
