Variety was the spice of the second annual Alli’s Journey TAKE MY HAND concert in May 2007. While the inspiration and guiding spirit, Alli Shapiro Amar, was not physically there, her courageous presence was brought to life through rich musical performances, side-splitting comedy, moving poetry and poignant drama.
The inaugural TAKE MY HAND concert in June of 2006 was a meaningful celebration of the courage, strength and heart of the young adult cancer patient. Thanks to the hard work of its creators, Alli Shapiro Amar and her mother, Pam Shainhouse, as well as to a host of volunteers, the evening was an emotional and beautiful success. The obstacles faced by the young adult cancer patient melted away as the evening evolved seamlessly.
