2014 Celebration of Life

Thursday, September 4, 2014

At mAss Kickers, we believe that we need a unified fight against cancer.

October has become widely recognized as breast cancer awareness month, a campaign that has become a global phenomenon. Of course, as a result our friends and family have benefited from more early detection and improved, efficient treatments. Why not apply even just 10% of this same passion to other types of tumors and cancers?

The mAss Kickers family invites you to join us on Saturday, October 4, from 6-9PM at 3rd Space (4610 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92116) for the 3rd annual Celebration of Life event!

Over the last 2 years, mAss Kickers has helped San Diego survivors get together to celebrate life after their epic battles AND officially say thanks to the family, friends, and fellow survivors who stepped up to become an important part of their post-treatment lives. Patient supporters often are neglected, even though they truly deserve recognition!

At the Celebration of Life, patients, survivors, and their supporters will be able to connect with others who share their experiences. Three tumor/cancer “thrivers”, Melanie Kabo, Tanya Lemons, and Robyn Hammel, will also formally honor all the unsung heroes of these diseases with toasts.

If you’re unable to make it to the event, you can still get involved online!

1. Consider donating to mAss Kickers on Stay Classy; proceeds will benefit mAss Kickers Foundation’s unique programs and events. All October, we’ll also be using the #mAssKickerProps hashtag to help post-treatment thrivers share their stories.

2.  Use the #mAssKickeProps hashtag when you:

  • Take a picture with your unsung heroes on Instagram
  • Record a short video to thank your unsung heroes on YouTube

We’ll share your photos and videos on the official mAss Kickers Facebook and Twitter!

We hope to see you at the Celebration of Life! Remember that ”TUMORS SUCK, BUT WE (post treatment thrivers) ARE AWESOME
