BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. - A birthday celebration in honor of Support Connection’s 20 years of service to the community was held last Wednesday at The Briarcliff Manor.

The Yorktown-based not-for-profit organization, which provides support to breast and ovarian cancer patients, was founded in July 1996. In the two decades since Support Connection was established, it has helped thousands of women and families cope with the challenges that result from a breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis.

Support Connection’s co-founders, Nancy Heller and Rich Adamski, both of Yorktown Heights, were on hand for the festivities, as was founding Executive Director Katherine Quinn of Shrub Oak.

“It’s hard to believe that 20 years has gone by,” Quinn said.

The celebration included unlimited wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres. There were also music, raffles and, of course, a birthday cake.
