National Cancer Survivors Day
5 June, 2022 - 00:00

On the first Sunday in June each year, on June 5 this year, the non-profit National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation rallies its forces and resources to promote National Cancer Survivors Day in the U.S. and worldwide, as it has done since 1988.

The NCSD Foundation bills the holiday as a “celebration of life” where survivors — described as anyone who has a history of the disease, from the point of diagnosis through the remainder of life — gather with friends, families, and supporters to raise awareness, spread information, provide services, and honour other survivors, all to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be full and fruitful.
