Today is National Cancer Survivors Day® 2014! Thousands of people around the world are celebrating life with you today. On this 27th annual Celebration of Life, we want to show the world what life after cancer looks like – that it is beautiful, it is meaningful, and it is something to celebrate.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is the one day each year that communities across the globe come together to honor those who are living with a history of cancer. NCSD provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors, celebrate milestones, and acknowledge the families, friends, healthcare providers, and researchers who have supported them along the way. It is a day for cancer survivors to stand together and show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be exciting, fulfilling, and inspiring.

Let 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® 2014.
