To Show We Care is an amazing organization. Through the selfless acts of the founder, Stephen Tyler and its many volunteers, so many that are not as fortunate to enjoy good health as we are, are able to enjoy a night out at the North Shore Music Center in Beverly, Mass. These individuals are treated to a wonderful dinner and a top-notch Broadway show, along with a night of fellowship and fun before the play. A very dear friend of mine and her sister took part in this. They could not stop taking about how wonderful the night was. We all know the little things mean alot in life. Something we may take for granted, another suffering from a very serious illness does not take anything for granted. One night out can give our loved ones and friends a night out that they will never forget. But most of all they are able to forget their troubles for the night. To see the joy and laughter that this organization gives our friends and those affected by difficult diagnosis, is all worth it. It doesn't end there. Those that enjoy the dinner and the show give the volunteers so much back as well and it helps us realize how blessed, thankful and fortunate we are to have our good health. It is a win-win for all. I believe the volunteers get back as much as the recipients do.
Thank you to Stephen Tyler for founding To Show We Care, a wonderful nonprofit organization.

To Show We Care is an amazing organization that was started and continues out of love! The hard working group provides a much needed night out to cancer patients struggling in treatment where they can hopefully forget their struggle for a night, enjoy a reception and a show mingling with caring people and even getting to meet the cast of the shows they see at the North Shore Music Theatre. I have been a volunteer with them for a few years and remember being struck by Stephens story about why he started the organization and by the caring and dedicated volunteers and supporters, the appreciative patients and the beautiful sentiments and night out that is created for these deserving patients. I love being part of this group and will to be as long as they'll have me! Check us out ... donate ... join ... you'll be glad you did!

I'm 9 years out from being diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, surgery, chemo, major complications, etc. Steve Tyler and To Show We Care helped to make some tough times easier with their generous and loving spirit.

Being a survivor thus far has also motivated me to donate back to the cause, too.

We are blessed to have people such as Steve in this world. If you can, please help him to keep it going forever by donating.

I was so impressed with Mr. Tyler and his volunteers at To Show We Care who provided such a fun, memorable evening. We were treated to a delicious meal and an amazing show 42nd street. I was truly amazed by the talented stars in the production and we even got to meet them after the show. I met so many brave people who are fighting for their lives against cancer and we all had big smiles on our faces thanks to this wonderful organization. I will never forget this very special evening and I thank Mr. Tyler, his volunteers and his sponsors for taking the time to provide such a fun event.

I had my first experience with "To Show We Care" just this past weekend.
My wife and I were treated to a great show at the North Shore Music Theater (42nd Street). There was dinner, the show and to top it off, we got to meet the entire cast of the show after the show ended.
Stephen Tyler made us feel very welcome and I can feel the compassion that oozes from this man.
Thank you again,

Just diagnosed after 7 years with return of breast cancer-Stage 4 metasticized to Chest Wall/Lungs when I saw sign in MDs office with invite to a nearby performance of 42nd Street @ a local music theatre 2 days away! I contacted Stephen & he made it happen! My disinter in law & I had such a wonderful evening including pre-show catered dinner and post meet and greet with the cast! 5 hours that I didn’t have to think about Cancer—but when I did I was reminded that I’m not alone & others may have things worse than I do; so that made me grateful for the evening itself, the health I do have and time I have left, and for my wonderful family & Friends!

This is an amazing organization. Stephen Tyler, the volunteers, ND MY and the sponsors put on a fun night for those with a chronic illness and their caregiver. My husband and I have been to two events and really appreciate a night of no stress or worry.

Stephen Tyler does a tremendous amount of work for his non profit that I was able to participate in when he founded To Show We Care. I offered what time and resources I could for most of the events, as well as the musicals playing at Beverly's NSMT. For the 1st three years I was in charge of photographing the events shown at NSMT - This was a perfect way to meet all of our cherished guest who were given a wonderful night of shared food & drinks, and "top - notch" entertainment. I also helped find local businesses who were excited to donate food, pastries, and gift baskets.

My wife and I shared many great nights at the theatre with Stephen and Sue, (while she was in treatment). Now into it's 4th year, To Show We Care has taken hundreds of people who are presently undergoing treatment to many shows and events, and I've personally seen first hand how one person's battle can become a catalyst to comfort and build up so many others going thru similar circumstances. It is deeply heartfelt to see the level of satisfaction that To Show We Care brings to the hearts of those that come out and receive the gift that Stephen made available with a simple idea, and a gigantic heart!

My wife and I have attended two events at the North Shore Mucic Theatre sponsored by To Show We Care. It was great to get out and have a meal and watch a show that we probably would not have been able to see without this group. We didn’t have to do anything but show up and enjoy ourselves. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and we felt welcomed. The meal was great and the show was very well done. We are very thankful to Steven and his “crew” for all their help and hard work.

I have been going to the MGH for treatment of my cancer and it was there I first noticed the flyers about "To show we care" and the offer to attend Christmas carol play free of charge. My wife and I needed a break from all the cancer appointments and Chemotherapy so I called. My wife and I did attend the show and met others going through cancer treatments with their families by their side. I cannot tell you how good I felt that people and donors made this all possible. Cancer is terrible but the kindness and generous donors made this night special for us, Thank you "To show we care" and all the volunteers and donors for making this possible.

It is a heart warming experience to work with Stephen Tyler, the other volunteers and the cancer patients that are a part of the To Show We Care Experience. This organization is totally dedicated to providing an enjoyable night at the theater and dinner for cancer patients and their caregivers. What a joy it is to see them relax and get away from their illness for an evening.

This wonderful organization allowed me to take my 5 year old grandson to a performance of Rapunzel and out to lunch with other children with parents who also have cancer. It's been a very difficult year for my family, and a 5 year old should not have to go thru his mom's treatment for metastatic breast cancer. This was such a welcome time away from the illness, and all the time away from his mom while she goes through treatment. He loved the show and can't wait to go back to the theater. Thank you for allowing a little boy to be a little boy and forget about how sick his mom is.

I just started to volunteer at this organization because what they do is so different than other cancer organization and it is crucial for the patients to recovery. They provide a fun night full of entertainment to patient in treatment so they can forget for one night their pain and instead laugh and smile!. This event is so encouraging and inspiring for patients and their families and also for volunteers. It is so important that patient stay strong soul and mind while their are in treatment. The good memories that this organization create in those patients that one night is a treasure patients and their families will keep for ever!.

I have accompanied a person with an illness to shows through this program. It is so heartening to see someone enjoy a night out and forget about their illness for a night. They get to enjoy meeting before the show while food is available, and sometimes meet the cast after. It is a wonderful program!!!!
