Stand Up To Cancer

Stand Up To Cancer

I stand up to cancer every day.

Screw you, cancer.

I also do stand-up.

Why would I want to make you laugh?

Because laughter connects people faster than anything else.

And when we connect, we heal.

Laughter has been around for a long long time.

Since before language.

A super easy form of communication.

To ease tension.

Fostering a sense of tribe unity.

Super important for small groups of early humans.

Important now.

Because it connects us.

And when we connect, we heal.

We laugh 30 times more when we're chilling with other people compared to solo.

Being close with friends and family has been proven to extend longevity.

So enjoy laughing.

I'll keep trying to make you laugh.

Every day.

Because laughter is connection.

And connection is healing.

That is reason enough.

You definitely don't need a prescription.
