Last Friday night the 2016 Kaleidoscope DE Cancer Conference kicked off with a Cocktails and Comedy Show at the Embassy Suites in Newark, Delaware.
Belynda Cleare, a member of the Kaleidoscope planning committee as well as a world renown comedian was the host and she along with 6 other comediennes entertained a packed crowd in a sold out house.
Kaleidoscope DE Cancer Conference was the dream child of Nicolle Surratte and the Cocktails and Comedy show kickoff wasn’t simply a way to raise funds and awareness to women living with all types of cancer. The Cocktails and Comedy Show was a way to get your laugh on with comics who are also cancer survivors.
There were no actual alcoholic “cocktails” served at the show, however, cancer meds and chemo treatments are often referred to as “cocktails” hence the play on words. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and was glad that hubby was also able to attend as he too had a great time.
Laughter is oftentimes the best medicine and because the comedians could laugh and share their cancer stories in a humorous manner made it easier for others to do so as well.
The comics for the evening were:
During the evening I posted several videos on my Facebook page and a lot of pictures to my Instagram page. I highly recommend that you check out each of the comics either there or on YouTube as they are all hilarious!
The 2016 Kaleidoscope Cancer Conference is going to become an annual event in Delaware so make sure you follow along and don’t miss it in 2017.
Next week I will share some of the highlights from this year’s conference as well as the presenters who came out to educate and empower cancer survivors, mind, body and spirit.
