Welcome to Beat Your Thief!Is this the new site help

Sandy and her sister Macaya Douoguih, M.D.Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues , this web site is to let you know about a documentary that I am producing about thyroid cancer. I am a survivor. I menaged to maintain my "A" average in law school as well as ownership of my theatre, Riprap Studio Theatre, in North Hollywood, CA while going through this ordeal. Initially, I felt tremendous shame. Not for having cancer but shame at not having a horrible cancer. So I felt I had no room to complain or be afraid. At the urging of friends and family over the last seven years, I have slowly found that telling my story is an inspriation to others. First at law school, then at my theatre and at work and play. So now I've decided to share my story with the world and I need your help! Sandy and her brother Wiemi Douoguih, M.D.

I cannot do this on my own so I'm asking for your participation in a great cause that will hopefully inspire thousands of people suffering from the emotional blow and the physical and financial shock of cancer. Your donations will help us to help lift others' spirits in order to keep up the good fight!

His first uncredited acting performance in film was Claudine in 1974. His first credited role was in Chico and the Man as "Bubba" in the episode "Too Many Crooks" which aired in 1976.

Riprap Entertainment

Our initial concept in 1999 included broadcast productions of writers' works in Los Angeles and New York performed by professional actors in Los Angeles. We condensed and read submissions on television and gave the author a copy of the show. I first attempted to produce Riprap Writers' Playhouse on Super-VHS (a step up from VHS). The results left a lot to be desired. Disappointed, but not derailed, I chose to go digital. Riprap Writers' Playhouse and the Coffee-zine Scene! were then photographed with a Canon XL1, and edited on a Power Mac with Final Cut Pro. We suspended production of the television show when we converted the theatre and we focused solely on stage plays.

We used to accept short stories, poems and articles for publication in our e-zine, The Coffee-zine Scene! The e-zine took a back seat to my bout with cancer, an unfortunate but inspiring journey which began in 2005. I am happy to say that I am brighter, stronger and better.
