Hundreds of communities around the world celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day® on Sunday, June 3, 2018. Tens of thousands of people across the globe came together to celebrate life, to bring attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship, and to let the world know that life after cancer is about more than just counting years. It’s about making those years count.
In its latest issue, Coping® with Cancer magazine is featuring photos from these heartfelt celebrations as part of its official coverage of National Cancer Survivors Day® 2018.
Each year, Coping magazine – an NCSD national supporter – publishes exclusive coverage of National Cancer Survivors Day® in its July/August issue, using photos submitted by NCSD event coordinators. The 6-page feature spread highlights remarkable photos and stories from Survivors Day events held all over the world.
In addition to the print exclusive, Coping has also published a digital version of its NCSD coverage at copingmag.com. The online feature includes all the photos highlighted in the print edition.
National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual, treasured Celebration of Life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide, and around the world, on the first Sunday in June. On National Cancer Survivors Day®, thousands gather across the globe to honor cancer survivors and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and even inspiring. NCSD offers an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s 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.
Coping® with Cancer magazine is the premier magazine for people touched by cancer. A national sponsor of National Cancer Survivors Day, Coping has been a source of knowledge, hope, and inspiration to people worldwide for more than 30 years. Coping is written by and for the cancer community and is read by more than a half-million people in the waiting rooms of America’s private practice oncologists, hematologists, urologists, and cancer treatment centers.
