Since beginning in 2009. Cruise Against Cancer has become the primary fundraiser for Celebrate Life Cancer Support Group. Over the years, this event has raised more than $130,000 for local cancer patients. Funds generated on this day will help meet the basic needs of hundreds of cancer patients throughout Cocke, Jefferson, & Sevier Counties. Celebrate Life provides assistance with medical costs, utility bills, gas cards, groceries, prosthetic devices, and various other expenditures with which cancer patients may be struggling. In addition, their “Manna From Heaven” snack ministry keeps refreshments available to radiation and chemotherapy patients at cancer treatment centers in Morristown & Sevierville. As a Susan G. Komen grantee, Celebrate Life may also provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients throughout Eastern Tennessee.

We want to be sure people understand the primary difference between Relay For Life and Celebrate Life. The majority of funds generated by Relay are used toward cancer research… while every penny raised by Celebrate Life will stay in our community… directly assisting local area cancer patients. Both charities are vital in the fight against cancer, but each organization has a very different focus.

Celebrate Life Cancer Support group serves hundreds of local area cancer patients every year. Meanwhile, the need in our community increases daily. While we’d love to see you at our Cruise Against Cancer in April, it’s important to note that donations may be made at any time.

Checks may be made payable to:
