Today is National Cancer Survivors Day - Welcome to the Celebration

Welcome to National Cancer Survivors Day® 2015! Tens of thousands of people in hundreds of communities around the world are celebrating life with you today.

On this 28th annual Celebration of Life, cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, family members, and friends will gather across the globe to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and inspiring.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is the one day each year that we all come together to recognize the cancer survivors in our communities, to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges they face, and most importantly, to celebrate life. NCSD provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors; acknowledge the family members, friends, and healthcare professionals who have supported them along the way; share their unique personal stories; and show the world that there is life after cancer. Now that is something to celebrate.

Today is a day for everyone to stand with the cancer survivors in their community and make a commitment to help find ways to lessen the burdens a cancer diagnosis brings. May today be a celebration of how far we have come in cancer survivorship, as medical advances are allowing cancer survivors to live longer, better, more productive lives than ever before. But let it also be a call to action for more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors.

Thank you for joining us in celebrating National Cancer Survivors Day® 2015.
