Do You Want to Be Part of One of the Largest Cancer Survivor Celebrations in the World?
You can by organizing a National Cancer Survivors Day® event in your community.
National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual, unforgettable Celebration of Life for anyone who has been affected by cancer. Now in its 36th year, NCSD is one of the largest cancer survivor events in the world.
Held every year on the first Sunday in June, National Cancer Survivors Day® is a day for everyone to join in solidarity with cancer survivors around the world. On this day, tens of thousands of people will gather in cities across the globe to recognize cancer survivors, raise awareness of the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face because of their disease, and – most importantly – celebrate life.
You can be a part of it by organizing a National Cancer Survivors Day® event in your city on Sunday, June 4, 2023.
