National Cancer Survivors Day is a celebration of life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide and around the world every year on the first Sunday in June.
Participants unite in a symbolic event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, productive, and even inspiring.
It is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional. This day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s nearly 14 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.
More info about NCSD at the official website.
Practically everyone is touched by cancer – either by your own diagnosis or that of a loved one.
It was 8 years ago that I had my own personal journey with cancer, and I’m healthy and strong today. It’s important to let others know that a cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence and that we can kick cancer’s ass.
Celebrate! More wine!
