Celebrate the 25th Annual National Cancer Survivors Day, June 3


The first Sunday in June each year for the past twenty-four years has been recognized as National Cancer Survivors Day, a celebration of cancer survivorship observed in communities and countries all over the world. The event is spear-headed by the non-profit National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation.

The Foundation offers a variety of support strategies to help the many hundreds of cancer-related organizations hosting National Cancer Survivors Day events. As their home page says,

"Participants [in National Cancer Survivors Day] unite in a symbolic event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful and productive."

They define a cancer survivor as "anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life." National Cancer Survivors Day allows others to see that their community features an active, productive cancer survivor population.
