Laughter Heals Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to promote healing through laughter.
LAUGHTER HEALS supports improvements in the world of health care by heightening the awareness of the power of laughter. We want to alleviate the ills of the world one laugh at a time and spread the light of humor to everyone.
LAUGHTER HEALS FOUNDATION was founded by veteran comedian, Craig Shoemaker. After 25 years of performing in comedy clubs, theaters, and at hundreds of charity events, Craig experienced first hand the positive health effects that humor had on his audiences. Unfortunately, there are thousands of people who cannot regularly attend live shows or movie theaters.
Craig’s best friend has been battling brain cancer for several years. As a frequent caregiver, Craig noticed the depressing atmosphere in the hospitals and support facilities where he took his friend. The places were filled with people watching dismal daytime television programs which seemed to offer very little solace and comfort for the already disheartened patients.
It is for this growing segment of society that Laughter Heals was born.
