How Will You Celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day?

Sunday, June 3 is National Cancer Survivors Day – an important day for us here at CHAMPS Oncology because the work we do is all part of a bigger goal to ensure there are more cancer survivors to celebrate with each year. Did you know there are an estimated 15.5 million people living with and beyond cancer in the U.S. today? According to the NCSD website, by 2026, that number is expected to increase to 20.3 million.

With numbers that high, it is no doubt that every member of our team here at CHAMPS has been touched by cancer in some shape or form. That’s why we’ve made our mission personal: to improve patient care by delivering and transforming high-quality cancer care into actionable information for healthcare providers.

So what are you doing to observe and celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day? Here are some suggestions from the NCSD website:

  • Check with your local cancer treatment center, hospital or American Cancer Society office to find a NCSD celebration near you and join in. NCSD celebrations will be as diverse as the cities where the events are being held. From parades and carnivals to health fairs and cancer awareness runs, each community will celebrate in its own unique way.
  • Host an event of your own using NCSD resources.
  • If you’re a survivor, share your story, connect with other survivors, celebrate personal milestones and recognize those who have supported you.
  • Follow and share posts from the NCSD Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
  • Leading up to National Cancer Survivors Day, spread the message on social media by sharing this suggested post:

    Life after cancer is about more than just counting years. It’s about making those years count. Let’s work together to lessen the burden of cancer survivorship. Join us to #CelebrateLife and raise awareness on National Cancer Survivors Day, June 3. #NCSD2018

It doesn’t take more than a few moments to do something to recognize cancer survivors, bring attention to the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face or celebrate the life of someone who has battled cancer.

What else are you doing to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day next month?
