Valerie’s devastation turned determination and her “hulk-like” strength, along with her family and friends, inspire her resolve to find the superhero within. With unflinching bravery, Valerie strives to empower herself and conquer her insecurities of breast cancer’s impact on her womanhood–a true and inspiring story–watch the underdog triumph!

Through my participation in Planet Connections performing The Pink  Hulk, I raised funds for Mary’s Place By the Sea in Ocean Grove, NJ, which is a wonderful nonprofit organization for women who are receiving treatment for cancer. They provide services that complement cancer patients’ medical treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, individual psychotherapy, Reiki, guided meditation and yoga. Visit for more information.

Here is an article I wrote on Mary’s Place during my wonderful visit to this sanctuary by the sea! 

Here is a link to my article on the PIT and the value of IMPROV and the ZEN EXPERIENCE!

From the Writer
Valerie David

I first began writing The Pink Hulk: One Woman’s Journey to Find the Superhero Within in November 2015.

I decided to create this show after my two bouts with cancer to share my experiences with you. I want to inspire and empower any person facing adversity in his/her life that there is hope in the worst of circumstances. I am truly blessed and grateful that in only 5 months’ time, The Pink Hulk transformed from a reading into a full staged production!
