Viva la Vida, held in conjunction with National Cancer Survivorship Day, provides a day of music, games, activities, food, fun and laughter for current and former patients, their family and friends. This event provides those who have faced cancer a day to forget about treatment and celebrate life.

Cancer can involve significant psychological, social, and economic challenges for patients. Many times, the joys of life are forgotten in the day to day struggle with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

With this in mind, Viva la Vida was begun in 1990 to give those who have faced cancer a day to forget about treatment and celebrate life. This event provides encouragement and hope, offering living proof that cancer can be survivable.  Viva la Vida has more than twelve hundred attendees each year. This event is held on the first weekend in June in conjunction with the celebration of National Cancer Survivorship Day.

Celebrate life at Viva la Vida

Due to the generous support of corporations, foundations, and individuals, the event is free for all who attend - patients, family members and friends. Everyone attending is treated to lunch in addition to ice cream, popcorn, cookies and sno-cones. Continuous entertainment is provided by magicians, jugglers, clowns and musicians. Special activities and games are well attended by young and old alike. Over one hundred volunteers help plan and staff the event.
