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.

Our Annual Celebrate Life Day is dedicated to Nancy Heller. Nancy is one of Support Connection’s co-founders, served as Board President, and is one of our staunchest supporters. A breast cancer survivor for more than 30 years, Nancy believes in celebrating life and encourages all to live every day to its fullest. By dedicating this day to her each year, we pay tribute to her continual inspiration to us all.


Celebrate Life Day 2022

It was truly special to be back together, in-person, for Support Connection’s Celebrate Life Day. Over one hundred cancer survivors, caregivers, friends, and family joined together to celebrate their triumphs and joy with each other.

Guests enjoyed a delicious lunch, music, and a chance to relax and enjoy one another’s company at Traveler’s Rest in Ossining, NY. The afternoon included an inspirational speech shared by Support Connection Peer Counselor, Denise Rodman, who was moved to work with the organization after her own cancer journey, which included Support Connection services.

Special thanks to Arber Balidemaj / The Select Team / Compass Real Estate, our Event Sponsor, whose support made the luncheon possible.

Support Connection is grateful to 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.

Please enjoy our Event Slideshow, which shares more information about Celebrate Life Day, the mission of Support Connection and who we are, and heartfelt thanks to many who generously donated their time and efforts to make the day possible.
