National Cancer Survivors Day Is This Sunday. Join Us As We Celebrate Life and Raise Awareness.

Thursday, June 4, 2015

National Cancer Survivors Day® is only 3 days away. We hope you join the millions of cancer survivors around the world as we celebrate life and raise awareness of the issues of cancer survivorship on Sunday, June 7.

Why do we celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day?

2015 balloonsNational Cancer Survivors Day® is the one day each year that communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, to bring attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship, and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and inspiring. NCSD also provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors, celebrate the milestones they’ve achieved, and acknowledge the family members, friends, and healthcare professionals who have supported them along the way.

Who is a cancer survivor?

A survivor is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. Whether you’re in treatment, just diagnosed, or have been in remission for 20 years, you’re a cancer survivor.

Help us raise awareness of the challenges of cancer survivorship.
