Celebrate Life Cancer Support Group

Celebrate Life Cancer Support Group was founded March 22, 1999 by Michele Sexton, a breast cancer survivor. The group hosts many informative speakers; including oncologists, social workers, dieticians, counselors, an acupuncturist and many others. They also host a "Pampering Night" and a summer picnic. Celebrate Life assists patients in Cocke, Jefferson, & Sevier Counties. Grant money and donations are used for transportation assistance, medicine, supplies, utility bills and any other special needs a cancer patient may face during treatment. The group also designates funds to help with supplies for monthly meetings. In addition, an outreach program called "Manna from Heaven" supplies snacks to chemotherapy and radiation waiting rooms at Cancer Centers in Morristown and Sevierville, TN. The Manna program is funded primarily by group members and the parishioners of Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Newport, TN. The group meets on the Fourth Thursday of each month at 7PM in the community room at Smoky Mountain Home Health & Hospice on Heritage Boulevard in Newport, Tennessee. Major annual fundraisers include Cruise Against Cancer, a collector car event held on the Fourth Saturday of April... and Kickstands-Up Against Cancer, a benefit motorcycle ride held in September.
