My friend Debbie has breast cancer. She was treated in all the typical ways (and that sucked, let me tell you) but in the end, the cancer is going to stick around for a while. Really for the rest of her life. Yeah, that really sucks.
So, I made a movie, basically, to convince my friend, Debbie to stop working so much and enjoy life. Not because she is going to die, but because she is still alive. And DAMN IT!! Life is too short to spend all your time stuck in a demanding, stressful job and miss out on all the amazing things that happen while you are there.
The movie is called LIVE A LITTLE:
(go ahead, click on the picture…)
Well, Debbie retired! Yeah!
So then I was thinking, and keep in mind the film isn’t even done yet, but, nevertheless, I was thinking, if this film could help Debbie, maybe it could help other people too. So I looked around and I found just the folks…Singleton Moms - an awesome non-profit here in Phoenix that provides support to single parents with cancer. Check out their website and make sure you watch this video:
Pretty awesome, right?
So here’s what we are going to do…We are going to have a Film Festival to raise money for Singleton Moms. No kidding!! It’s going to be a blast. No, not a Sundance-type of thing that lasts for days and celebrities are milling about and movie deals are struck and everyone wears sunglasses at night.
Not that kind of film festival!
More like a film festival/party where we watch great local short films about inspirational and amazing people, hear about some wonderful organizations and the amazing things they do, and most importantly, celebrate life. And then of course, we will hit the after party!!
So mark you calendars for the evening of October 10, 2013 because you won’t want to miss it! Oh and by the way, Russell Shaw is going to be the emcee! So you know it’s going to be a good time.
Watch for more information coming very soon. I was just so excited, I couldn’t wait to tell you about it!! If you are interested in helping out, don’t be shy! Shoot me an email at Kristin@HereInPhoenix.com or call me at 480-282-7464.
