I have had the opportunity to get involved with Scotiabank's Buskerfest this summer it was a great event put on to support EPILEPSY TORONTO.
I had the opportunity to meet two of the Buskers from Australia... BENDY EM & SPACE COWBOY. These two were spectaclar showstoppers... really sexy performers... great performances! Bendy Em, is a contortionist who fits her body (and a basketball) into a 16 inch square plexiglass cube, which is suspended above the ground on scaffolding. Space Cowboy, juggles sharp objects, rides a ten foot unicycle, bends objects with his mind (psychokenesis), practices body suspension and swallows swords! He holds several Guiness Book world records.
BENDY EM INSIDE HER BOX! AWESOME!
WATCH THE SPACE COWBOY SWALLOW HIS SWORD! FANTASTIC!
Epilepsy Toronto's next event is on September 10th (Saturday) @ College & Spadina. There will be a block party with all proceeds going to the chaity.
So make sure you come out and donate to Epilepsy Toronto and stop by the C.A.L.M. booth to learn more about medical marijuana and how it can help epilepsy and many other chronic health conditions. I'll be at the booth... so make sure you come and check it out!
Epilepsy has affected me on a personal level... in 2004 I had a seizure, fell and broke my neck and am now a quadriplegic. C.A.L.M. is also my medical dispensary of choice, as living medicine provides relief from seizures, chronic pain and muscle spasms.
