"Concert for a Cure"

DIET CANCER: I intend to make light of cancer. I intend to find humor in it. I intend to make people laugh at me/with me.
These were my intentions when I started this blog on March 23, 2011. I was in an oncology waiting room in Tampa, FL and the only thing I had in common with the other patients were tumors. I thought to myself, "What a joke!" So I started Diet Cancer.

Different angle needs to be taken this afternoon to honor a fellow melanoma WARRIOR that lost her battle just a few weeks ago. She was 25. Her family has reached out to me and I feel so much gratitude towards them, but also to all my supporters. We are doing what we set out to do and getting the word out that melanoma is no joke.

Her family is set out to make a difference and hosting "Nikkis birthday concert for a cure" in May downtown Snellville that will benefit Emory Winship Melanoma research. They said that Nikki was planning on becoming an advocate when she got better and will be smiling down on this event in May proud to see her family and friends gather together to celebrate her life.

I will post more info on the event as it comes. Below is a link from the Gwinnet Daily about Nikki Rouis:
