27 Jul

TUNE IN THURSDAY, JULY 27th at 11 AM!

[LISTEN ONLINE TO WURD AM]

Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., Board Chair Professor Tonya M. Evans joins WURD AM host Stephanie Renee McNeal on “The Mojo” to discuss the upcoming benefit performance of LIFE in the CANCER LANE, by a stage play written by PWCF founder and Philadelphia native Barbra Watson-Riley. The play will be staged during the 115th National Medical Association Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly  held at the Philadelphia Convention Center (7/29-8/2). Watson-Riley is the late daughter of Philadelphia notables Dr. Bernard Watson, Sr. and Mrs. Lois Watson.

With honesty, heart and humor, LIFE in the CANCER LANE is told from the real-life accounts of survivors and their caregivers, examining life after diagnosis and what happens when these women are thrown head first into the Cancer Lane. Whether it’s the chemo side effects or loss of hair and friends, the play examines the twists, turns and bumps in the road along the breast cancer journey.

[LIFE in the CANCER LANE Sizzle Reel]

The performance will be held on Monday, July 31st at 8:00 PM in the Nutter Theatre at the Philadelphia Convention Center, a state-of-the-art 600-seat theater, with a post-show fireside chat and VIP reception to follow. Musical accompaniment is provided by V. Shayne Frederick. The play marks the close of the W. Montague Cobb NMA Health Institute’s 12th Annual Lecture and Scientific Program, Precision Medicine Impact on Breast Cancer in African-American Women that begins on Sunday, July 30th from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm in Nutter Theatre.

With honesty, heart and humor, this story is told from the real-life accounts of survivors and their caregivers, examining life after diagnosis and what happens when these women are thrown head first into the Cancer Lane. Whether it’s the chemo side effects or loss of hair and friends, the play examines the twists, turns and bumps in the road along the breast cancer journey.

LITCL was created by PWCF’s founder, Phoenix playwright and activist Barbra Watson-Riley, who in the midst of her own battle with breast cancer, gave birth to this powerful production. Even after her death in 2013, Barbra’s story endures; informing and impacting the lives of anyone who has ever been touched by the disease. This production is directed by Philly’s own Stephanie Renee McNeal.

PWCF partners with The Cobb Institute to present LIFE in the CANCER LANE in Philly!

26 Jun

A note from PWCF Board Chair, Professor Tonya M. Evans

Greetings Friend:

As the Chair of the Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc. Board, I write with great enthusiasm to announce that PWCF has partnered with the W. Montague Cobb National Medical Association Health Institute to present Life in the Cancer Lane, a play written by our founder, Barbra Watson-Riley, the late daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Bernard Watson, Sr., during the 115th National Medical Association Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly.

In the midst of her battle with breast cancer, Barbra gave birth to this powerful production and attended the play’s debut in October 2013 just weeks before she passed away. Even after her death in 2013, her story endures; informing and inspiring the lives of anyone who has been touched by cancer.

We will present the performance as a fundraiser on Monday, July 31st at 8:00 PM in the Nutter Theatre at the Philadelphia Convention Center, a state-of-the-art 600-seat theater, with post-show fireside chat and VIP reception to follow. We need your support to present Barbra’s work in its highest and best light for the greatest impact to educate and inspire patients, caregivers, and medical professionals.

I am writing personally to ask for your support.

How You Can Help

PWCF is a 501(c)(3) created to continue Barbra’s tireless work to promote breast cancer awareness, to fund research for a cure, and to support and encourage survivors, their families and caregivers.

The Cobb Institute, also a 501(c)(3), conducts studies and offers recommendations for elimination of health disparities that affect African-Americans and other populations of color. W. Montague Cobb was a forceful advocate for racial integration of hospitals and medical schools.

On behalf of the Board, I thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to connecting with you to encourage and improve the lives of survivors in underserved communities nationwide.

For more information, visit PinkWellChick.org.

Warm regards,

Tonya
