Robert Ramirez, DO, FACP
Steve Mazan had known since he was a kid that he wanted to make people laugh. A diagnosis of neuroendocrine cancer in 2005 made this stand-up comedian and inspirational speaker more determined than ever to realize his dream of being on The Late Show with David Letterman. He was told he had 5 years to live; 15 years later he’s a nationwide performer, an Emmy Award winning television writer, an author, and a TED speaker. Steve’s inspiring story of battling cancer while trying to reach his ultimate dream of performing on The Late Show led to an award-winning documentary entitled “Dying to Do Letterman,” which aired country-wide and is available on iTunes and Amazon. “It doesn’t matter how much time you have,” says Steve, “It’s what you do with it.”
This Facebook LIVE event will be hosted by Rain Bennett, a longtime CCF filmmaker and dear friend of the NET community. To view the program come to CCF's Facebook page,, at noon Eastern Time.  There is no need to register and there is no special link.
