June is National Cancer Survivor Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

Survivorship: the state of being a survivor. This is the dictionary’s definition of such condition of state. But to those who have been diagnosed with, lived with, lived through, and lived beyond such a thing like cancer, that definition is incredibly vague.

Being a survivor of cancer, no matter what kind, means strength, courage, love, appreciation, celebration, and gratitude. According to the National Cancer Institute, as of January 2019, it has been estimated that 16.9 million individuals within the United States are cancer survivors. That number is expected to increase to 21.7 million by 2029.

June 2nd was the official recognization of the 32nd National Cancer Survivor Day. This day allows for and shows support to tens of thousands of individuals that come together in their local communities to celebrate the victory that is surviving cancer and related illnesses. It is known within this specific organized event that the day represents a Celebration of Life and allows for everyone who lives with a history of cancer to connect with one another. This day has been created to spread awareness of the challenges those of cancer survivorship still face and to promote ongoing research legislation that would provide even more support within their lives.
