Washington, DC, October 24, 2013 - In memory of a young man named Justin Izlar, who succumbed to a 7-year battle with osteosarcoma, Christoph Writes is putting on a 3-event benefit fundraiser, as part of their campaign, Fighting Cancer with Poetry. During Justin’s battle with cancer, he wrote inspirational poetry that helped him through the difficult times. Justin didn’t just write for himself, he believed that you shouldn’t leave this earth without leaving something behind that can potentially change someone’s life for the better. His poetry is what he left behind.
Christoph Writes primary goal with the Fighting Cancer with Poetry is to share Justin’s poetry with everyone going through any struggle, any difficulty in life. All proceeds raised from this event will go towards a major cancer awareness project which is a ‘Docu-Series Poetically Told By Justin Izlar!” Click Here to view the trailer!
