We are thrilled to announce that this year’s Spring Celebration was a SOLD OUT event!

The Cancer Support Community celebrated its Annual Spring Celebration on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at The Lighthouse on Pier 61 – part of the acclaimed Chelsea Piers sports and entertainment complex on New York City’s Hudson River waterfront. This signature event is designed to honor the legacy of the Cancer Support Community, and the visionary individuals and organizations who exemplify support for people living with cancer, and their families and friends.

Hosted by Jack Ford, CBS News Legal Analyst, the Spring Celebration celebrates the accomplishments of heroes in the cancer community while raising vital funds to advance CSC’s mission- to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.

This year, we were honored to have Vice President Joe Biden join us for our 35th Emerald Anniversary. We were proud to present him and the Cancer Moonshot team with the Founders Award for Vision for their actions that instill hope, and for the “urgency of now” that he and the team brings to the fight against cancer.
