National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day® is a treasured, annual Celebration of Life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide and around the world on the first Sunday in June. NCSD 2018 will mark the Celebration’s 31st year.
On this day, tens of thousands of people across the globe will gather in their local communities to honor cancer survivors and to celebrate life. It is also a day to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship with the aim of promoting more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.
The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation is encouraging everyone to mark this special day on their calendars and to make a plan to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day® with the cancer survivors in their community on Sunday, June 3, 2018.
