Dance Against Cancer Tomorrow

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 2:45 PM

Linda Tarason is a fighter. She was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2005 and had 60 percent of her colon removed. In six months, she had 12 chemo treatments. Tarason was cancer-free for seven years until being diagnosed with lung cancer. She endured more surgery and a softball-size section of her left lung was removed.

Instead of lamenting her health difficulties, Tarason decided to get involved. She is one of two Arizona leaders of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Each year, she organizes a fundraising event.

In 2010, she arranged a group dance video at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch. Last year, she conducted a flash mob at Park Place Mall. This year, it's an all-ages dance jam with a DJ and dance lessons.

Join Tarason to celebrate LiveStrong Day from 7 to 11 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 29 at Sonoran Dance Academy, 5536 E. Grant Road. $10, $5 for students to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Munchies and desserts will be provided.

An RSVP is appreciated. Call 440-7206, email linda@tucsonforlivestrong.org or visit www.tucsonforlivestrong.org for information.
