June 3 – National Cancer Survivors Day

Who is a cancer survivor? The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation defines a “survivor” as anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. National Cancer Survivors Day affords your community an opportunity to demonstrate that it has an active, productive cancer survivor population. [1]
This day is an annual Celebration of Life. Today marks the 25th anniversary of NCSD held worldwide on the first Sunday in June in hundreds of communities. Events are held worldwide to show life can be meaningful and productive after being a cancer survivor.
A NCSD event isn’t just for the survivor it’s for the family members, friends and medical professionals. See the NCSD press release for more information events. To locate and attend an event near you, contact your local cancer treatment center, hospital, or American Cancer Society office
