Help get the word out – National Cancer Survivors Day 2018 is Sunday, June 3!

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Survivors form a ribbon shape in parkThe day we’ve been waiting for is almost here! On Sunday, June 3, 2018, people across the U.S. and abroad will gather in their local communities to commemorate the 31st National Cancer Survivors Day®.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual, worldwide Celebration of Life held on the first Sunday in June. Hundreds of cities around the world will hold celebrations on this day to recognize cancer survivors, to bring attention to the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face, and to celebrate life. 

More Americans than ever are surviving cancer. However, despite their growing numbers, cancer survivors often must contend with rapidly rising drug costs, inadequate insurance coverage, difficulty finding or keeping employment, and ongoing physical, psychological, and financial struggles.

Help us raise awareness of the challenges of cancer survivorship and spread the word about National Cancer Survivors Day® 2018. 

We want to send the message that life after cancer is about more than just counting years. It’s about making those years count. Help spread the message by sharing a post like this one to your social media sites:
