Camp Liberty in Flat Rock
The Bonclarken Center in Flat Rock was bubbling-over with the Celebration of Life Saturday.
Hendersonville's Pardee Hospital is hosting Camp Liberty there this weekend.
The three-day event brings together people who have survived cancer or are undergoing treatment.
With an activitiy-packed agenda, these 27 campers say it's a great opportunity to focus on themselves but also connect with those who have gone through similar experiences.
Betty Pace, cancer survivor, "we forget about all the pain and anger and anguish that we went through to get here and we get to meet all these wonderful people and it makes me cry cause I think about how nice everybody is to us."
Pardee sponsors the camp at no cost to anyone who's been treated at the hospital.
