National Cancer Survivors Day was held May 29, 2014 at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital.
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual, treasured Celebration of Life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide and around the world. 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. Participants unite in a symbolic event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, productive, and even inspiring.
A “survivor” is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. We view this day as a chance for the communities we serve to join together and celebrate all survivors.
