Today is National Cancer Survivors Day – a Celebration of Life for anyone who has been touched by cancer. As I sit here today with one of my favorite cancer survivors, valiantly battling prostrate cancer for the last 12 years, I am reminded of their struggles and how important each moment is.
Every day, and especially today, we lift up cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, family members, and friends. We pay tribute to those who are living with a history of cancer and hope to bring attention to the ongoing challenges they still face. Most importantly, we join together with everyone to celebrate life. Spread the word there is life after cancer –beautiful, meaningful life that it is something to celebrate. Let us all do more to lessen the burdens of cancer survivorship.
