About the Play

Life in the Cancer Lane© begins when women first hear the words “Breast Cancer”.

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 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. All proceeds benefit Pinkwellchick® Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3).
