On April 9, 2014, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center will host a “Night of Humor & Healing” for young adult cancer survivors ages 16-40 years old at the famed Second City Theater. The evening will include dinner, drinks, networking, and a one-hour hilarious improv show followed by a presentation from four-time cancer survivor Glenn Rockowitz. Glenn is a former improviser and Saturday Night Live writer who went on to publish a book about his experience battling cancer as a young adult. Now he is the Executive Director for Change It Back, an organization that sets national standards for adolescent and young adult oncology (AYAO) care.
The Lurie Cancer Center understands that young adult cancer survivors face unique issues and may need different care and information than other age groups. Our “Night of Humor & Healing” is one of many programs and services offered to young adults. Learn more about the event and get your tickets today at http://cancer.northwestern.edu/humor/index.cfm.
The Oncofertility Consortium is proud to support the Night of Humor & Healing and urge all of you to look through the information provided through the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center website and attend the event if possible. It’s sure to be an invigorating and entertaining evening!
