Cancer Can't Kill Love
On November 10, 2013, with the help of some very special friends, hundreds of people -- from Bay Ridge to Bayside and as far as Connecticut -- came out to move their feet and raise a glass to Joanne McGoldrick, just one of the hundreds of thousands of cancer patients who lost their battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia that year.
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn honored her as well as her husband Butch who lost his battle with Mesothelioma (asbestos-triggered lung cancer) just five years earlier, and every other mother, father, wife, husband, sister, brother, and friend fighting the war against cancer.
Long story short, this small South Brooklyn town told cancer to fuck off, all while having a great time for a great cause and, most importantly, raising hundreds of dollars for Stand Up To Cancer. This year, we're doing it again, and we're doing it bigger. This is our chance to show our love, and tell the C word to take a hike.
Join us on Sunday, October 12 -- just three days after the one year anniversary of Jo's passing, and one day before what would've been Butch's next birthday -- to raise a glass, stuff your face and dance until your feet give out, not just for Jo and Butch, but for every soldier -- fallen or still fighting -- in this war.
While donations will be accepted the day of the event, they're not mandatory for entrance. We're using the honor system this year so please, whether or not you can be there, try and give. Every dollar counts.
Here's to no more mothers lost, no more fathers lost and no more friends lost.
It doesn't matter who you stand for, just stand up.
