Tomorrow Too
By Don Colburn

“From the first time I read them, these poems grabbed my heart and have not let go. They trace a deeply moving story from surprising and multiple points of view. Don Colburn has packed so much wisdom and heart into these spirited lines, honoring a woman whom I was lucky enough to know during her too-short and shining life.” — Bill Rauch, artistic director, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Walking with Alice
By Laura Mason Caldwell

Longtime Eugene resident and community pillar, Laura Mason Caldwell was diagnosed with
Stage 3 breast cancer in the fall of 2011 and immediately became a strong advocate for informing women of the enormous risk factor that results from having dense breast tissue, which masks tumors from being discovered using the common mammogram. Laura worked with the Oregon Senate and House of Representatives to get Senate Bill 420 passed last year. The bill requires doctors to inform women of the risks of dense tissue, and that if it is present an ultrasound may be required to find breast tumors. Laura’s hope was that no other women of Oregon would needlessly suffer cancer because a doctor withholds this critically important information. Laura documented her journey with cancer in a book, Walking with Alice.

 

Within these two very personal stories you will find truth, both personal and universal.
Directed by:
Leigh Matthews Bock

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go towards Breast Cancer Awareness.

    Laura was and will continue to save lives because of her selflessness. We aren’t related but were friends thru Pampered Chef for years. We all miss her and will never forget her. Thank you for showcasing her story.

      I love Laura Caldwell. She is an inspiration to us all! A soulful, witty, truth-teller; Laura could light up a room! Her height alone
      was a presence. She is forever etched in my heart!
