"We are interested in using poetry and the arts to raise both funds and cancer awareness by performing and/or hosting a 'Poetry Jam Fundraiser' at the White House."
On behalf of Fighting Cancer With Poetry, Inc., a leading Non-profit Organization that utilizes poetry and the arts to encourage people to join the fight against cancer, it is our earnest desire to partner with the Obama Administration to host, what we've coined, a "Poetry Jam Fundraiser" at the White House. Hosting this event would prove that our president has joined the fight against cancer and agrees that poetry and the arts are viable outlets for those in need of a healing and coping mechanism. This Poetry Jam Fundraiser will feature several local renowned Spoken Word Artists who will inform, impact, and inspire, a cancer warrior/survivor who will tell their story in monologue form, and an artist who will paint on canvas as a backdrop for the performances.
