THE STORY:

As an arm of the Women Survivors Alliance, My 2nd Act: Survivor Stories From The Stage has been created to give survivorship a voice as well as to raise awareness about the needs of survivors after treatment has ended and they've been released back into the "real" world, forever changed and with a whole new host of issues. Sometimes the aftershocks are worse than the actual earthquake, and this is often the case with women post-cancer. The goal of the Women Survivors Alliance is to create a movement, as well as an international community, and they're well on their way to doing so. The second annual National Women's Survivors Convention will take place in Nashville on July 31-August 2, 2014, and the inaugural production of My 2nd Act: Survivor Stories From The Stage will close out the event on the evening of Saturday, August 2, 2014. (Learn more about the events - and purchase tickets - here: http://survivorsconvention.com and here: survivorssecondact.com.

The collective vision of the WSA founders is bright and ambitious and has the potential to transform ... they truly ARE creating a movement, and those attending the Convention have front row seats. But movement building is costly, and these women are not in it for the money. In fact, they've both left their careers to devote themselves full-time to the cause and have actually dipped into their own funds to try and make ends meet for these first two events. They didn't break even the first year, and won't break even the second, but they're already planning for year three and beyond with no intention of giving up. They're the little engines that could and they need our help to continue. My goal is to help them raise enough funds to cover the costs of the 2014 convention so they don't go into planning for the next year already in the hole. Won't you help? And spread the word. They are changing lives and you can be a part of it. Join us.
