On Sunday, June 7, people across the globe celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day® 2020. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, cancer survivors and supporters found unique ways to celebrate life, to bring attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship, and to let the world know that a better quality of life for all cancer survivors is something worth fighting for.
To commemorate the celebration, Coping® with Cancer magazine is publishing photos from NCSD celebrations as part of its official coverage of the 33rd annual National Cancer Survivors Day® Celebration of Life.

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 16.9 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.
