National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation Thanks NCSD 2016 Organizers, Supporters, and Participants

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

On Sunday, June 5, 2016, tens of thousands of people around the world gathered in their local communities to commemorate the 29th annual National Cancer Survivors Day®. Hundreds of cities across the nation – and around the globe – came together to recognize the cancer survivors living in their communities and to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges they face.

The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation would like to thank the event coordinators who planned and hosted National Cancer Survivors Day® events in their towns and cities. NCSD could not happen without the hard work and dedication of local event coordinators who work tirelessly to bring the celebration to the cancer survivors of their communities.

The Foundation also wants to thank the national sponsors who helped make NCSD possible through generous financial contributions. National Cancer Survivors Day® 2016 was sponsored nationally by Amgen, Astellas, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Coping with Cancer magazine, with support from Genentech, Raquel Welch® Signature Wig Collection, and Teva Oncology.

Finally, the Foundation would like to thank the cancer survivors who celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday, June 5, whether at a local Survivors Day event or individually. These survivors are the reason we celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day each year.

2016 NCSD logoNational Cancer Survivors Day® exists to show the world that there is life after cancer, that it can be active, joyful, and fulfilling. And while that is definitely something to celebrate, National Cancer Survivors Day® is also a call to increase quality of life after cancer by addressing the physical, emotional, financial, and social burdens cancer survivors face.

Once again, the Foundation would like to offer a sincere thank-you to everyone who supported and participated in National Cancer Survivors Day® 2016 and helped raise awareness of the complex issues surrounding cancer survivorship.
