LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A three-time cancer survivor is dusting off his dancing shoes to help others in their fight.

Pasju Kubert is hosting a one-man benefit show called “White Daisies and Dragonflies” at the Capitol City Theatre.

“(It’s about)Celebrating the idea of living and longevity, not being attached to illness and suffering and struggle because there are always humans willing to help humans,” said Kubert.

He says the Heartland Cancer Foundation has helped him overcome many battles and has inspired him to perform to help others.

“The Heartland Cancer Foundation really helps in a very practicable, tangible, day-to-day way that is very special and very moving and very touching and very altruistic and generous,” Kubert. “So anybody that supports other humans helps humans answer the question of what it means to be human.”

Kubert says as an HIV and cancer survivor he wants to inspire others to keep going.

Tickets are $35 and proceeds will go to the Heartland Cancer Foundation.

The shows have limited seating but they will be live-streamed online.
