About The American Cancer Society
For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.
It was in 1981 when my mother lost her courageous battle to breast cancer. My father raised me, my four sisters and three brothers on his own never remarrying, all the while running our family’s automobile business. In 2013, breast cancer once again struck my family when my sister-in-law succumbed to the disease leaving behind my brother and their two children.
Laughter has always been the ‘cure’ for my family. It has kept us close, and has allowed us to balance the daily trials of life throughout the years. This show is dedicated to these two beautiful women, Barbara Rodgers Aidala and Christine ‘Chrissy’ Aidala -- Greg Aidala, Comedian and MC for the show.
