How Did You Hear About Us?:

STORY - For the past three years, my son Miles has been fighting brain cancer. While in the hospital, I asked his schoolmates, doctors, comedians, celebrities and total strangers to tape a joke for him to watch.

Now, as he’s facing a third recurrence, I'm on a quest to get 5,000 people to tape a quick joke or well-wish, to show him he’s not alone in his fight against cancer.

Do you have a joke? CLICK HERE to show Miles you're in his corner.

NO SMALL PLANS - As we attempt to get 5,000 people to tell Miles a joke, we hope to create awareness worldwide and inspire people to go out of their way to tell a joke to someone facing a serious illness. We will soon be reaching out to other kids like Miles.

DOCUMENTARY - Soon, Miles will be visiting National Parks to photograph them. We hope to rally 5,000 jokes before we hit the Redwoods! We will be documenting this journey and Miles’ story of facing adversity with humor. To learn more and how you can support our efforts, CLICK HERE.

















TELL A JOKE to Miles and invite your friends and family to do the same. Then, tell a joke to someone else fighting cancer.
