Why laugh at Cancer?  Join Dr. Sharon Johnson in the fight against Cancer with laughter.  Laughter is the best medicine.  What is Humor Therapy? 

Description:  Humor therapy is the use of humor for the relief of physical or emotional pain and stress. It is used as a complementary method to promote health and cope with illness.

Overview:  Although available scientific evidence does not support claims that laughter can cure cancer or any other disease (to admit humor's curative powers would cost them big $$$, therefore, no dice), it can reduce stress and enhance a person's quality of life. Humor has physical effects because it can stimulate the circulatory system, immune system, and other systems in the body.

How is it promoted for use?  Humor therapy is generally used to improve quality of life, provide some pain relief, encourage relaxation, and reduce stress. Researchers have described different types of humor. Passive humor results from seeing prepared material, such as a funny movie, standup comedy, or an amusing book. Spontaneous or unplanned humor involves finding humor in everyday situations (umm, you mean like having a sense of humor.)
