Eric Day Stay PositiveAncilla College is proud to host a lecture by Plymouth native, Eric Day at 3 p.m. (EST) on Monday, November 30th in Cana Hall. Day will be discussing his “Stay Positive” Wristband program and the life benefits of behaving with a positive attitude.

Day, a two-time brain cancer survivor, found a friend in Allison, a fellow patient being treated at the Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center in Bloomington, IN. Before leaving, Allison wrote Day a letter with the message “Stay Positive” signed at the bottom in her best handwriting.  Soon after, Eric began to spread his message through his wristbands. Embossed with the phrase “Stay Positive,” Day preaches that “You can’t always control what happens in life, but you CAN control your attitude.”

Day’s discussion at Ancilla College is open to the public. He will be selling his wristbands at the event for $1 and all proceeds from the sale of his merchandise are donated to the Stay Positive Scholarship Fund.

Since 1937, the college has been a sponsored ministry of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
