written and performed by Anita Hollander

 

Anita Hollander lost her leg in 1977 to cancer. Still Standing details her story from diagnosis to the very moment of performance. Her leg will not grow back, but her mind and spirit and soul have grown to more than compensate. With songs, wit, understatement, great dollops of humor, but not a smidgen of self-pity, Hollander reaches out to every member of the audience.
