Celebrate Life®

celebrate life

Every year at each Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) hospital, we commemorate a major milestone for many of our patients—their five-year anniversaries as cancer survivors. We hold a special event called Celebrate Life® to honor and congratulate these individuals.

This two-day tribute to our cancer survivors includes:

  • A welcome reception/dinner at a local hotel, where most out-of-town guests stay
  • Breakfast the day of the ceremony/party
  • A ceremonial tree planting (trees are planted in a local park in honor of each survivor)
  • A gold leaf for each survivor (inscribed with his or her name) on the Tree of Life in the hospital’s lobby
  • Hope RoundsSM (visits with patients currently in treatment to share hope and inspiration)
  • A commemorative plaque for each survivor
  • A buffet lunch and formal ceremony held on the grounds of the hospital

We put a unique spin on each year’s event. Past themes include “Walking on Sunshine,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” “How Sweet It Is” and “Believe.”
