    FightCRC_Webinar_January2015_800x300

    In our October webinar we spent time reviewing family history and importance. In this webinar, we will discuss genetic and familial syndromes that are specific to colorectal cancer.

    We will discuss what you might look for in your family history and think about implications for prevention and management of the colorectal cancer syndromes based on this information!

    Reefer-madness-fundraiser

    Matthew Gunnels was a dear friend to world, particularly to the world of theatre in Chicago and beyond. He was taken from us far too early, but not without gifts of performance, theatre and passion for everything he did. We ask that you donate here to help raise funds for Fight Colorectal Cancer, an organization that will assist in the research to find a cure for the disease that takes so many lives. On behalf of Matt, we are collecting donations to put towards that goal to find that cure. If you cannot attend the actual performance (or just want to give even more!) please donate!

    The main event we want to provide for you is Matt's beloved and multi-Jeff nominated production of Reefer Madness. The original cast, crew, production team and band is gathering together to perform this monumental show one last time, in an energetically REHASHED staged-reading format.

    Please join us at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL at 8:00pm (7:00pm doors open) on Monday, February 2nd. We will have other opportunities to raise money for this admirable cause: 100% of ticket proceeds, raffle ticket purchases for gifts that Matt would have enjoyed, and a bar that donates $1 of every drink sold post-show.

    Please help us to celebrate Matt by breathing life back into one of his favorite productions and join us for Reefer Madness: REHASHED.

    Tickets are available HERE
