THE STORY:

The Committee for the Preservation of Erin Cronican wrote -

Erin Cronican is a lovely, multi-talented, actress, director, writer, coach and all-around terrific person. She is also locked in a battle for her life with the breast cancer beast, and undergoing radiation treatment and chemo therapy. Because she makes her living by virtue of her talent and her wits, in spite of her courageous effort, and fighting spirit, the battle has taken a toll on her savings and her strength. Hence the golden opportunity for friends past, present and future to step forward and join this initiative to bolster Erin's forces to "Crush The Beast!!!"

To that end, Feb 27 is now declared to be “Crush The Beast Day” sponsored by “Cabaret Beats Cancer”, on behalf of our beloved friend Erin. On that evening there will be a fabulous cabaret show at 5PM at Don’t Tell Mama, where a line-up of performers will bring all their magic to bear.

There are multiple ways to participate:

A) Make a contributionIf you can't make the show, you can still participate in surrounding Erin in the consciousness of healing love by sending a donation and taking a moment between 5 - 6PM on 2/27 to bring her to mind and send the prayer of protection (see below) her way. To do so, click on DONATE. The goal is $3,000 from donations.

B) Start your own fundraiser in support of Erin: Click the black JOIN button and then click START YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER to create your personal fundraiser page as part of Erin's team. Then: 1) Email the link to your personal fundrasier page to all your friends and colleagues and ask them to donate. 2) Use the social messaging tools to post your fundraiser page on Facebook and Twitter. 3) Keep messaging and let's all help raise money so Erin can "Crush The Beast!!!" 

C) Come to the Show: If possible from a logistic standpoint, please contribute your presence and come see this special show, that will celebrate Erin's past and future life. You can make a reservation at the DTM website by following these instructions:

D) Follow Erin's Blogs:

Her Personal Blog –                                 www.ErinCronicals.com, A look at living and performing in NYC, including Erin’s humorous glance (only Erin) at living with cancer.

Her Medical Blog – http://posthope.org/erincronican/journal , including periodic medical updates. In it she mentions a list of ways to help her get through this period, from certain kinds of food, for books and journals to record her thoughts and express her feelings, to MetroCards and more.

“Crush The Beast – Cancer Beats Cabaret” is a call to arms to not let this be a passing fancy that is gone and forgotten on 2/28, but rather a sustained engagement.

A call to keep Erin in your thoughts, send notes of encouragement and other expressions of our creative caring. Your friendship and that caring are the most valuable gifts you can give during this time, and when you think of Erin, think of these words or their equivalent.

The PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The Light of Life Surrounds Erin

The Love of Life Enfolds Her

The Power of Life Protects Her

The Presence of Life Watches Over Her

Wherever Erin Is, Life Is, And All Is Well
