A Celebration of Life & Hope – Survivorship Banquet
HNCA’s South Carolina chapter held its annual survivor banquet, A Celebration of Life & Hope, on Saturday, April 13. Survivors shared stories filled with inspiration, courage, and humor. Guests enjoyed a buffet dinner, specially suited for head and neck patients and survivors, overlooking the baseball stadium. Thank you to South Carolina Chapter Presidents, Alissa Yeargin and Emily Manny, for hosting this engaging event, which also raised funds for the Chapter’s activities.
