National Cancer Survivors Day 2022 is an international event to raise awareness of cancer, sufferers and survivors. The event is held on Sunday June 5th, and on the first Sunday in June every year.
A survivor is anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and survived, but even survivors have lasting effects on their lives left by the cancer, and this can affect them and their family in numerous ways.
The day is a day of celebration for all cancer survivors and their friends and families and a day to raise awareness of cancer and how it affects lives. The event is a celebration of survivors, hope for the newly diagnosed, support for affected families and outreach in the community.
