The 34th Annual Susan Fund Awards Ceremony was held on June 28th, at the Center for Survivorship in Southport, CT. Twenty-five Fairfield County cancer survivors were awarded scholarships.
Jeff Keith, the director of the Center and an original Susan Fund Scholarship recipient welcomed the students and their families, the Susan Fund Board Members and invited guests.
Jeff gave a brief history of his cancer experience and how the scholarship money from the Susan Fund helped him. Several years ago he changed careers and founded the Center for Survivorship, a place that reflects the increasing cure rates for cancer patients and the need for a place for these survivors to exercise and meet with a community that understands their life experiences.
Jeff then introduced Ann Lloyd, the president of the Susan Fund, and presented a $25,000 contribution from The Center to The Susan Fund. The gift was unexpected and very graciously accepted by Ann in behalf of The Susan Fund.
Ann founded the fund in memory of her daughter, Susan DavisLloyd.
Susan’s dream was to attend Colgate University to which she had been accepted early Learn more
