National Cancer Survivors Day is celebrated on the First Sunday of every June. This year it will be celebrated on June 5. An epidemic in the world today is one that seeps into every level of the social strata. Education is no protection and wealth, and there are ways to reduce the possibility that being one of most double million people per year that are affected by it, the causes of this plague are understood wrongly. Every year 450 men and women out of every 100,000 are diagnosed with one of the dozens of kinds of cancer, including 171 males and females who die from it. National Cancer Survivors Day is for those who have faced off against this most dread of ailments and risen again to live full, happy lives.
History of National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day was established to recognize and celebrate those who have cancer and won to help for bringing hope to those battling this terrible disease. While the numbers above sound terrible, there is more hope than they imply, in the US alone there are 14.5 million people who have beat or are living with cancer and 32 million around the world. Cancer hangs over the minds and hearts of most people as a death sentence, and the reaction to saying, someone, you know has it is palpable. But both those who have Cancer and their families need to know that it is far from helpless. This is a great success, and the survival rate gets higher with every passing year.
Treatment is getting more efficient, and there are groups around the world that get together to help Cancer patients and their families make it through the very long and hard road that is treatment and recovery. National Cancer Survivors Day is also dedicated to contributing to the research about cancer and raising awareness, raising funds, and treatment. With the efforts of organizations like the National Cancer Survivor’s Day Foundation and the American Cancer Association, a cure for cancer is just around the corner. In fact, for heating up, cancer is in the cross-hairs.
