On Sunday, June 2, tens of thousands of people around the world gathered in their local communities to commemorate the 32nd annual National Cancer Survivors Day®. Hundreds of cities came together to celebrate life and to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship.

The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation would like to thank the NCSD event coordinators who planned and hosted National Cancer Survivors Day® events in their towns and cities. NCSD could not happen without the hard work and dedication of local NCSD event coordinators who work tirelessly to bring the Celebration of Life to the cancer survivors in their communities.

The Foundation also offers its sincere gratitude to the national supporters who helped make NCSD possible through generous financial contributions. National Cancer Survivors Day® 2019 was supported nationally by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Coping with Cancer magazine, Elekta, Exelixis, Janssen Biotech, and Takeda Oncology.

Finally, the Foundation would like to thank the cancer survivors who celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day® 2019, whether at a local NCSD event or individually. These cancer survivors are the reason we celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day® each year.

National Cancer Survivors Day® exists to acknowledge cancer survivors, to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges cancer survivors face because of their disease, and – most importantly – to celebrate life. It is also a call to action to increase cancer survivors’ quality of life by addressing the unique physical, emotional, financial, and social burdens these survivors face.

Once again, the Foundation would like to offer a sincere thank-you to everyone who supported and participated in National Cancer Survivors Day® 2019. Together, we have made great strides in letting the world know that a better quality of life for cancer survivors is worth fighting for.

The 33rd annual National Cancer Survivors Day® will be held on Sunday, June 7, 2020. For more information on hosting an NCSD event in your community, visit the NCSD Foundation’s website, NCSD.org, or sign up for the NCSD newsletter for up-to-date news and information on National Cancer Survivors Day® 2020.
