Celebrating Cancer Survivors on National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday, June 2

FRANKLIN, TN, USA, May 29, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Sunday, June 2, 2024, people around the world are joining together to acknowledge these cancer survivors, and to raise awareness of the challenges of cancer survivorship, as part of the 37th annual National Cancer Survivors Day®.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual worldwide Celebration of Life that is held on the first Sunday in June. Hundreds of cities across the U.S. and abroad will hold celebrations on this day to honor the cancer survivors in their community, to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face, and – most importantly – to celebrate life.

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

The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation is encouraging everyone – cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, family members, and friends – to join the worldwide celebration. To find out how your community is celebrating, contact the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation.

Additionally, the Foundation is offering a way for everyone, whether attending a local Celebration of Life or celebrating in their own unique way, to connect with fellow cancer survivors and supporters around the world on Sunday, June 2. You can follow the celebration online by using the hashtag #NCSD2024 and following National Cancer Survivors Day® on social media.

The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation – along with NCSD 2024 national supporters Amgen, Aveo Oncology, Convatec, Coping with Cancer, Deciphera, Erasca Foundation, Hologic, Incyte, Ipsen, Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine, Labcorp, Lantheus, and Springworks Therapeutics – is encouraging people across the globe to stand with these survivors on National Cancer Survivors Day® and bring attention to these challenges of cancer survivorship.

“So much progress has been made in the fight against cancer since the very first National Cancer Survivors Day® was held in 1987,” says Foundation spokesperson, Laura Shipp. “However, we need to make sure that cancer survivors aren’t forgotten once treatment ends. It’s important that we address the long-term effects of cancer because cancer survivors deserve the best possible quality of life after facing this life-threatening disease.”

The NCSD Foundation urges everyone to spread the message that cancer survivorship isn’t about just being alive after cancer. It’s about living life as fully as possible.
