A Celebration of Life!

The Scenic City Survivors recently held their calendar unveiling party in the IMAX garden. This is the sixth annual A Celebration of Life! calendar produced to support the MaryEllen Locher Foundation.

This amazing calendar project has raised more than $75,000. As a result, the MaryEllen Locher Foundation has provided college scholarships for children who have a parent affected by breast cancer. The Scenic City Survivors say this unique scholarship fund helps lift the financial and emotional burdens faced by the growing number of children affected by breast cancer in our country.

More than 140 local breast cancer survivors have been featured in the calendar since its inception in 2005.

The spirit of this group can be felt while reading the survivor quotes in the calendar. Their messages of love, support and gratitude are inspirational.

Their secondary message is, "Attitude is Everything." Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please consider supporting this organization by purchasing one of these calendars or making a contribution to the MaryEllen Locher Foundation. To lift the spirits of breast cancer survivors during October, send a 40 character message of hope and inspiration to those affected by breast cancer via Twitter to @TNAquarium, or post a message of support on the Tennessee Aquarium's Facebook page.

The Tennessee Aquarium was honored to be this year's A Celebration of Life calendar location.
