National Cancer Survivors Day

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 11.40.30 AM

This Sunday, June 7th, is National Cancer Survivors Day.  It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community.  

We hope that everyone who has been touched by cancer is able to connect with others to celebrate those who have survived and support those who are grieving.  This day brings attention to not only the need for further research and funding to treat and cure cancer but also to the specific issues faced by the growing population of cancer survivors worldwide.
