Why Celebrate Laughter?
"Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. ha, ha ... Okay I'll stop laughing long enough to tell you! My young daughter and I decided to celebrate laughter after I was diagnosed with cancer in 1999. Nothing seemed funny at that moment of diagnosis but laughter and comedy actually became pivotal tools in our strategy to combat the physiological and psychological effects of cancer/illness. Laughter is a divine gift. It's free. We realized that our family was benefiting from this joy-filled practice of laughing together every day, in spite of my cancer treatments we decided to share our family strategies with others."

"Laughter is not only the best medicine. It's what keeps marriages alive, families from going insane, team mates in sync, and companies from going belly under (pun intended). Let your own Magical Impish Child come out more often and you'll be surprised at how the world looks different -- for the better. "
