Today – June 4, 2023 – is National Cancer Survivors Day®. Welcome to the celebration! Cancer survivors and supporters around the world are celebrating with you today. As are we here at the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation.
As we commemorate this 36th annual Celebration of Life, we come together – as cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, family members, and friends – to champion all people who are living with a history of cancer and to bring attention to the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face.
Today is a day for all of us to take a stand for cancer survivors, to make a commitment to help lessen the burdens of cancer survivorship. It is a day to advocate for more resources, research, and legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.
It is also a day to celebrate.
May your day be filled with love, joy, smiles, laughter, and encouragement. May today be the day you decide to celebrate every beautiful moment life brings to you.
We believe all cancer survivors deserve a life with less complication and more celebration.
Who is a cancer survivor?
The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation defines a survivor as anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. National Cancer Survivors Day® offers your community an opportunity to show that it has a valuable and vital cancer survivor population, as well as to make a commitment to improving the lives of cancer survivors.
Help us raise awareness for cancer survivors.
More people than ever are surviving cancer. However, despite their growing numbers, cancer survivors often must contend with ongoing physical, psychological, social, emotional, and financial struggles.
Today, we want to send the message that all cancer survivors deserve the best quality of life. Help us raise awareness by sharing a post like this one to your social media pages:
Surviving cancer is something to celebrate, but it’s not the end of the story. Cancer changes your health and your life forever. Today, on National Cancer Survivors Day, let’s #CelebrateLife and raise awareness of the challenges of cancer survivorship. #NCSD2023
Don’t forget to tag us in your posts and use the hashtag #NCSD2023 so we can follow along with your Celebration of Life. We can’t wait to see your photos and hear your stories.
