National Cancer Survivors Day® is Sunday, June 3, 2012. This 25th annual celebration of life will be held in hundreds of communities worldwide. Cancer survivors, caregivers, family members, friends and healthcare professionals will unite to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful and productive.
Anyone living with a history of cancer, from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life, is a cancer survivor according to the NCSD Foundation. Nearly 12 million Americans are now living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer. Learning about this disease is crucial, because many forms of cancer can be prevented and most cured if detected early.
