For Lymphoma Survivors, Birthdays aren’t Just Another Day

I love, love, love this idea. Well, I love birthdays – mine and everyone else’s. The American Cancer Society wants to remind us that "Happy Birthday" is a victory song, because a world with less cancer is a world with more birthdays. And that's definitely something to celebrate.

More than 11 million Americans who have survived cancer—and countless others who have avoided it—will celebrate a birthday this year, thanks to the progress we're making together to help people stay well and get well, to find cures, and fight back.

Join the movement for more birthdays—declare the American Cancer Society the official sponsor of your birthday. At the official birthday blog, ( you can read all about birthday celebrations as well as incredible cancer survivor’s stories. For example, here a faf of mine: “As you can see birthdays are not just another day for me…even if it’s not my own. Prior to my transplant my friends and co-workers celebrated my several times in the month of June to make up for having chemo on my special day. Every day of life is precious!

Celebrate the birthdays in your life because you never know what someone else is going through that day. This year is my 30th birthday and 6 year cancer free anniversary. It’s also the 25th anniversary of the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. So, how am I celebrating all these special events? I am attending 25+ Relay For Life events this summer from March through August. I’m a 2 time cancer survivor so what better way to live out the rest of my life than to… CELEBRATE, REMEMBER, FIGHT BACK!”
