Wilmington-Billerica-Tewksbury Relay For Life To Offer Free Survivor Social Event On May 7

WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington-Billerica-Tewksbury’s Relay For Life is sponsoring a free dinner social event for cancer survivors and their caregivers on Monday, May 7th at 6pm at Villanova Hall in Wilmington (125 Middlesex Avenue).  Comedian Jerry Caruso will provide entertainment.

Caruso has performed at many comedy clubs in Boston as well as throughout New England and New York.  His performances feature a unique mix of celebrity impressions, song parodies, and standup comedy.  In his act, Caruso routinely talks about his Italian life, his thoughts on aging, and rock n’ roll bands in their 50’s and 60’s. In 1994, he co-founded “Comics for a Cure.”  Caruso has a long history of supporting non-profit organizations with his time and talents.

This Survivor Social Dinner is a recurring event for the local Relay.  It doesn’t matter if people are still in treatment or are years past that special 5-year survival mark, they are all welcomed.

The dinner provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to celebrate with their caregiver guest and for them to meet others who have shared similar experiences. Together the group provides a strong message of hope and inspiration for anyone battling this disease.

While enjoying good food and entertainment, attendees can also learn more about Relay for Life and the free services available from the American Cancer Society to support patients and their families.

RSVPs are due by April 30th.  To RSVP or for additional information, please contact Francesca Gervasi at Francesca.Gervasi@cancer.org or 781-314-2633.  Or you can RSVP and register at https://www.wilmingtonrfl.com/event/relay-for-life-survivor-social/.
