The First Annual Rx Laughter Retreat for Families
The First Annual Rx Laughter Family Retreat event takes place in the Spring of 2006 on the beautiful Big Sur Coast of California. A small number of pediatric patients with neuromuscular & immune deficiency illnesses and their families will learn how to perform improvisational comedy routines amidst a beautiful, inspirational camp setting on the magical Big Sur Coast.
"Taught" informally by comedy professionals & overseen medically by a Pediatric Specialist Medical Team, this weekend Retreat is going to be a fun activity for the patients, siblings & parents to forget about their daily struggles and use comedy to feel more empowered, confident & renewed. We plan on educating the child & their family in a very upbeat, comfortable way on how humor -- and a sense of humor - can help them through the challenges that they face each day with each other!
