National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual worldwide Celebration of Life that is held on the first Sunday in June. It is the one day each year when people around the world come together to honor cancer survivors and raise awareness about the challenges of living with the disease. 

“A ‘survivor’ is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life,” according to the NCSD Foundation, administrator for the celebration.

Anyone – local cancer treatment centers, hospitals, organizations, support groups, religious institutions, and even individuals – can host a National Cancer Survivors Day® celebration in their local community. The only requirement is to register the event with the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. By registering your local event, NCSD event planners will gain access to many valuable resources, including the following:

  • step-by-step planning guide filled with information and resources to help you plan and promote your community’s Survivors Day celebration

  • The NCSD Merchandise Catalog, where you can purchase National Cancer Survivors Day® keepsakes and t-shirts
  • Exclusive high-resolution downloads of official NCSD logos
  • Free Welcome Brochures and Cancer Survivor Resource Guides to distribute at your event

About National Cancer Survivors Day®

National Cancer Survivors Day® is a poignant, inspiring Celebration of Life led by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. It is also a call to action for further research, more resources, and increased public awareness to improve the lives of cancer survivors. 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 beautiful, meaningful, and triumphant.

It is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional. This day offers an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 18 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.
