On September 5, 2014 some big-hearted burlesquers, sideshow folks and musical comedy acts are coming together to raise money for Bebe, a 9-year-old ShihTzu who has cancer. Bebe’s treatment has consisted of a series of vaccines with each shot costing just under $800 and a couple of additional surgeries, all of which, so far, totals $7,000.

Bebe’s owner Momo Nakamura is a local actress who takes Bebe everywhere with her. The duo have even appeared onstage together in DC’s serialzed “doing good by doing theatre” festival, Hope Operas. Back in February Bebe had a surgery to remove a mass in her hind quarters that revealed a malignant melanoma. Without treatment, Bebe was given six months to live. Presented with various possible treatment options Momo chose the most humane, and coincidentally, financially burdensome treatment.
