Curtain Up Cancer Foundation celebrates the ‘power within’

An upcoming stage performance celebrates the lives of six people affected by cancer

SAN ANTONIO – Since 2017, the Curtain Up Cancer Foundation has had a mission of easing the effects of cancer through the creative arts - theater, live music, creative writing and storytelling.

The nonprofit has provided the community with enriching programs such as Cancer Chronicles, writing workshops, and Music Moments, a live weekly performance of music at local chemo centers.

During the holidays, Curtain Up Cancer will also visit local cancer centers, including pediatric cancer patients, bringing carolers who sing Dickens-style Christmas music.

Their annual fundraiser is a theatrical performance called “THE SIX: A Celebration of the Power Within.”

The musical presentation honored six local cancer survivors, telling inspiring stories of their cancer journey. The June 16th performance also offered complimentary “Survivor Tickets” for cancer survivors.

Curtain Up Cancer Foundation is a Texas nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. Click HERE for more information about volunteering.
