National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day, June 5, is a celebration of life that is held around the world on the first Sunday in June. It is a celebration of those who have survived, and hope for those who are still battling their illness. Did you know: In America there are more than 16.9 million cancer survivors, which is approximately 5% of all Americans? Support groups for cancer survivors can be helpful places where you can talk to other people with similar experiences. By uniting to recognize cancer survivors and raise awareness of the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face, we’re able to acknowledge and celebrate their fortitude and strength.
