National Cancer Survivor Month

Celebrate National Cancer Survivor’s Day. It is traditionally celebrated on the first Sunday in June. It is actually a worldwide event and a celebration of life, not just an awareness of a dreaded health condition. Let it be a wonderful day filled with hope instead of fear or dread, as we honor all those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
