What was the fight of your life?
Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center and Montclair Film are calling for storytellers to take part in a special event featuring inspiring stories of resilience. Building on Montclair Film’s popular StorySlam, the partners will present a special edition of curated stories entitled “Don’t Fight Fair: An Evening of Storytelling” on Saturday, June 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Cinema505 in Montclair.
Presented in support of National Cancer Survivors Day®, Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center and Montclair Film are seeking stories about courage, perseverance and all types of survival, including, but not exclusive to cancer survivorship. Individuals interested in telling a story for this curated edition of the StorySlam should submit an application by June 1st by visiting montclairfilm.org or smgstoryslam.com.
Selected storytellers will be invited to share their story at a special event on June 9 at Cinema505 and may be included in a special podcast and video. The public is invited to support cancer survivors and to celebrate the power of the human spirit by purchasing tickets to attend. The event, emceed by Risa Barash, will feature inspirational stories, as well as musical interludes.
The storytelling event is one of several events leading up to the grand opening of the Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center in Florham Park this fall. The new facility is a major stride in a quest to provide cancer patients in northern New Jersey access to the most advanced treatments and to the finest level of coordinated care close to home.
