National Cancer Survivors Day
We are often reminded that the toughest battles cannot be fought alone. Nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in one way or another - whether a friend or family member battled cancer or we were diagnosed ourselves. When this devastating disease touches our lives, we are quick to worry, grieve, and wonder what will happen next. What we sometimes forget to do, however, is live in the present and celebrate life - despite the battle we are all fighting. National Cancer Survivors Day serves to encourage that celebration and remind those affected by cancer that their lives can be long, happy and healthy - even after a diagnosis. Each year on the first Sunday in June, thousands of people across the nation will come together to celebrate hope, triumph, and the gift of life. June 5, 2011 is the 24th annual National Cancer Survivors Day.
