Roger is a former CNN sportscaster and Kathy is an award winning author and photographer. They are co-founders of the Cancer Crusade, an organization dedicated to fighting cancer with hope and humor. They were diagnosed with cancer within six weeks of each other. Their frankly hilarious take on the world of medicine blends seamlessly with a powerful message that energizes and inspires audiences to laugh, love and live in the moment, every moment.
All artwork is available for sale with the proceeds benefiting the Art Therapy Program at the Troy and Dollie Smith Cancer Center. There is a wonderful array of art, all by artists whose lives have been touched by cancer. Please stop by.
