Comedians raising money for toddler's cancer fight
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Four comedians are headlining a benefit show Feb. 2 at the Embassy Suites to benefit 3-year-old Tristan Carrion, who was diagnosed in November with rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue.

Tristan is scheduled to undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatments for at least 42 weeks to reduce the size of a mass that is wrapped around his liver and hepatic artery, making surgery impossible, organizers said.

Comedians scheduled to perform include Edwin San Juan, Frank Lucero, Eric Blake and Cochino Rojas.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling Monica Sanchez at (562) 644-6514. There is a two-drink minimum.

Several prizes will also be raffled, including stays at the Embassy Suites in Downey and the Hilton Garden Inn Suites of El Segundo, a pair of Clippers playoff tickets, a pair of Lakers tickets, several wine baskets and $100 in Lottery scratchers.

The show starts at 8 p.m.
