The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills will be hosting the 26th Annual National Cancer Survivor’s Day on Sunday, June 3rd at Chatterley’s Banquet Hall, 371 Pinewood Road, Torrington, CT.

This free event is for Northwest Connecticut cancer survivors and their families to celebrate and honor those living with and beyond cancer. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. rain or shine and features a delicious brunch, musical entertainment, photos and a very special guest speaker.

In 1992, a small group of dedicated nurses from Connecticut Oncology and Hematology and Charlotte Hungerford Hospital joined together to organize this annual event in conjunction with National Cancer Survivors Day. The program has grown from a very small ceremony at the Hospital to a catered and celebratory event involving over 200 survivors. Torrington joins over 700 communities around the world in celebrating life as part of National Survivors Day.
