National Cancer Survivor Day
1 year ago Hunt Media Desk 0
Every year, first Sunday of June is celebrated as the National Cancer Survivors Day. This day is celebrated to commemorate life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide, and across the globe. It is a celebration and inspiration for those who have survived and being recently diagnosed with cancer. On National Cancer Survivors Day, thousands of people gather across the globe to honour cancer survivors and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can still be fruitful, rewarding, and even inspiring.
Whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional this day belongs to everyone and also provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 15.5 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way. It is also a day to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship in order to promote more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.
On this day, events are organised which include meetings of survivors, meals, bake sales and coffee mornings, sponsored events, social events, dances, parades, pamper days, and much more, any fun and social way of fund-raising and awareness raising is possible. The fight isn’t over, in fact, it’s just heating up and cancer is in the cross-hairs. With the efforts of organizations like National Cancer Survivor’s Day Foundation and the Americans Cancer Association, a cure for cancer is just around the corner.
