Three Performances: Wednesday, October 27th @ 8:00 p.m. Thursday, October 28th @ 8:00 p.m. Saturday, October 30th @ 2:00 p.m. In honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, three-time cancer survivor and patient advocate Valerie David is staging her critically, internationally acclaimed comedic solo show. Talkbacks with cancer organizations and health care professionals follow each performance. Now battling breast cancer after fighting off lymphoma, Valerie does something most people facing cancer in their life probably wouldn't think of doing. With a fear that she might lose “the girls”, she takes them out for one last hurrah. And does Valerie succeed? Is there a “happy” ending? Come see the show to find out! This sexy, adventurous solo show follows Valerie's journey to seek her own “hulk-like” strength to find her superhero within to become a 3-time cancer survivor.

In honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, three-time cancer survivor and patient advocate Valerie David is staging her critically, internationally acclaimed comedic solo show. Talkbacks with cancer organizations and health care professionals follow each performance.

Now battling breast cancer after fighting off lymphoma, Valerie does something most people facing cancer in their life probably wouldn't think of doing. With a fear that she might lose “the girls”, she takes them out for one last hurrah. And does Valerie succeed? Is there a “happy” ending? Come see the show to find out! This sexy, adventurous solo show follows Valerie's journey to seek her own “hulk-like” strength to find her superhero within to become a 3-time cancer survivor. An empowering and true story of inspiration for anyone facing ANY adversity in their own lives! With plenty of humor—guaranteed!

Valerie “hulked out” on cancer; after her first two bouts with cancer—Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1999 and then breast cancer in 2014/2015. Then in September 2018, Valerie was re-diagnosed with breast cancer—this time Stage IV metastatic. As of April 2019, she has beaten cancer again and has continued to beat it! There is no trace of her cancer—zero evidence of disease.

Her solo play is a celebration of being comfortable in one’s own skin, of embracing and accepting one’s own body—no matter the shape or size. The Pink Hulk is a true testament to the power of our own inner superheroes within to fight back any challenges in life—to never give up and always have hope!

Valerie goes beyond just performing her award-winning solo show The Pink Hulk and is truly making a difference: She raises awareness, educates and inspires communities through her outreach, engagement and patient advocacy initiatives. She raises money through her performances for domestic and international cancer organizations. Valerie has also created “The Pink Hulk Forums,” moderating these panels of health care experts to discuss the latest breakthroughs in research and medicine, the obstacles of our health care system, and provides resources for cancer patients and survivors seeking both financial and emotional support. She has contributed to panel discussions with Theater Resources Unlimited, Broadway Bound Theatre Festival, Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival, and other organizations. Valerie nurtures and mentors solo show performers and encourages them to create their own stories, as well as providing advice and guidance on touring. She conducts improv and writing workshops for groups both internationally and domestically, including monthly for cancer patients and survivors through The Red Door Community (formerly Gilda’s Club of NYC).
