Celebrate Life Day

Each year, Support Connection presents “Celebrate Life Day,” to honor cancer survivors for their strength and courage, and to recognize the contributions of families, friends and other caregivers.

Celebrate Life Day is an uplifting celebration that includes musical entertainment, inspirational speakers, and the pleasure of good company and good food. It is held on the same day as National Cancer Survivors Day, an annual worldwide celebration of life held in hundreds of communities throughout the United States, Canada and other participating countries.


Celebrate Life Day 2017

On June 4, 2017, more than 140 cancer survivors, caregivers, friends and family gathered for lunch at Travelers Rest for Support Connection’s Annual Celebrate Life Day. It was a wonderful celebration.

Guests enjoyed music by award-winning singer/songwriter Steve Chizmadia. Guests were also treated to inspirational words from our speaker Nancy Heller, Support Connection Co-Founder and a 32 year breast cancer survivor. Nancy retired last year and moved out of state, but her guidance, support and positive impact will be a part of us all forever. For this reason, we dedicated this year’s Celebrate Life Day to her, in honor of her continual inspiration. We were delighted Nancy could fly in to join us this year, and her heartfelt and uplifting words made the day complete.

Support Connection is grateful to Wells Fargo Advisors for sponsoring the event, as well as Travelers Rest and their staff for their wonderful hospitality. We also greatly appreciate everyone who helped make this day a very special celebration of life by providing extraordinary hand-made items or by volunteering their time to make the day a success.
