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.

This charitable fundraiser event is presented by Pinkwellchick® Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the W. Montague Cobb National Medical Association Health Institute. Both organizations are 501(c)(3) organizations and all proceeds benefit their respective missions and initiatives.

This event WILL sell out, so purchase your tickets or sponsor for VIP tickets today!

Remembering Barbra Watson-Riley

Memorial PhotoAfter a courageous and vibrant life “in the cancer lane”, the journey of our Pinkwellchick®, aka Barbra Watson-Riley, ended on November 7, 2013. She gave an amazingly valiant and dignified fight and triumphs over death by leaving the world the legacy of her play highlighting survivor stories, Life in the Cancer Lane. It was truly a miracle for her to witness her life’s work come to life on stage just weeks before she transitioned.

We will always remember her life and, through the Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., Barb’s Bag® and LIFE in the CANCER LANE©, her legacy of service, strength, and commitment to the health and well-being of women; especially those living with breast cancer and heart disease and their caregivers.

Reflecting on Barbra’s journey … in her own words
