LIFE Center Stage, friends and fans of favorite local singer-songwriter, Carolyn Messina, organized a Kickin’ Cancer benefit concert to assist Carolyn with medical expenses associated with her recent diagnosis of Leiomyosarcoma – a rare and aggressive cancer of the smooth muscle and soft tissue. The show was held on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Rd, Morristown, NJ. 

The night was a celebration of Carolyn’s spirit of hope, strength and gratitude throughout this challenging time.

Kickin’ Cancer benefit concert for Carolyn Messina was a huge success financially, emotionally and musically. Besides rockin’ the house on the night of the fundraiser, we raised $4400.00 to give to our friend to help pay for some of her exorbitant medical costs. This is in addition to other donations made directly to Carolyn’s gofundme site, sponsor contributions to pay for the evening’s venue and related expenses as well as the valuable contributions by all.

Heroes & Villains
Youth were invited to work with a teaching artist and art therapist to create a mask and story that shows the challenges that they experience each day. Their masks will be featured in a short film. A second group of youth are working with musicians to compose the music score for the film.
Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day
We created a call to action leading up to Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day where we invited the community to submit inspiring songs around this crisis. 6 songwriters won a spot in an Collaborative Anthem Writing Workshop where they composed three songs. They performed their songs at Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day, one song was picked as the official anthem and was recorded in a professional studio.
