National Cancer Survivors Day
On Sunday, June 3rd, people all over the world will be celebrating the 25th annual National Cancer Survivors Day (NCSD). Beginning in 1987, NCSD presents an opportunity to recognize those that have survived the long, hard fight against cancer. It is a time for people around the globe to connect with each other, commemorate milestones in life, and thank healthcare providers and loved ones who have offered all their support to those afflicted with cancer. Most of us have at least one person in our life that has in some way been affected by cancer. Survivors prove to us that life after such a hardship can be meaningful and fulfilling.
In the United States alone, there are roughly 12 million cancer survivors. Each and every one of them deserves to be recognized for their strength and fortitude. We at CBU honor not only the survivors, but also the millions of dedicated healthcare workers who helped them through their struggle – and we encourage you to do the same! Nationally, there will be many NCSD activities going on. These include parades, carnivals, races, art exhibits, and more. You can contact the American Cancer Society office to locate an event near you. You can even host one of your own!
NCSD also serves as a reminder of the importance cancer prevention efforts. Regular screenings and awareness can allow for reduced risks of development or for early detection.
