Mitch Marczewski, brother of Jane Marczewski, aka Nightbirde, who performed her original song that received the Golden Buzzer “It’s OK” on America’s Got Talent, is one of the speakers at the now-free In-Person Showing Up: Perspectives On Cancer Event.
It will take place Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at Marywood University in Scranton. The event is organized by Tim Sohn, Shohola resident and 16-year cancer warrior.
Mitch was Jane’s best friend and big brother – he helped Jane through her cancer journey and was with her until the end. He is also CEO of the Nightbirde Foundation, which helps breast cancer patients who are artists just like Jane. Mitch will speak about Jane’s journey and how hope drives us to action, especially action that helps others.
The second annual event gives cancer patients, survivors and supporters an opportunity to connect and build lifelong friendships with others who have gone through similar circumstances, share their stories, feel inspired and be supported in person.
This is the second in-person event in connection with the weekly livestreamed show Showing Up: Perspectives on Cancer, found on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter & YouTube, which was launched in November 2021, a safe space where cancer survivors and cancer supporters come together to share their stories and connect, as well as find resources that provide healing, hope and resilience.
The day includes inspirational speakers, attendees will have a chance to share their own cancer stories in small groups, and more. The event includes coffee and tea, lunch on the first day and breakfast on the second day.
In addition, as part of the in person-event, Sohn will hold an episode of the weekly livestreamed show Showing Up: Perspectives on Cancer with a live audience. It will be livestreamed as well.
The guest is James Kiesewetter, a colorectal cancer survivor and thriver who has overcome the odds by battling and defeating stage 3C/4 Colorectal Cancer and living with the subsequent aftermath of pain, fatigue, and transcending through a difficult divorce. He embraced his spirituality, positivity, and kindness along the way as his guide.
