On Sunday, June 1, 2014, cancer survivors across the globe will unite to show the world what life after cancer looks like. This unique celebration will mark the 27th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. Thousands of people in hundreds of communities across the U.S. and abroad – and in Second Life – will hold celebrations on this day to honour cancer survivors and to show that there is life after a cancer diagnosis – and it’s something to celebrate.
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual worldwide Celebration of Life. It is the one day each year that we come together to honour everyone who is living with a history of cancer. A ‘survivor’ is defined by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, administrator for the celebration as anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.
NCSD provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors, celebrate milestones, and recognize the healthcare providers, family, and friends who have supported them along the way. It is a day for cancer survivors to stand together and show the world what life after cancer looks like.
NCSD is recognized by the American Cancer Society. See here for more information. And you can also visit the American Cancer Society island, which has been especially decorated for the day.
