National Cancer Survivor is designed to be a day to celebrate life. “National Cancer Survivors Day 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.” www.ncsd.org
Surviving mesothelioma is a big challenge. If you have been diagnosed or living with mesothelioma, this is your day to recognize all that you and your family have been through. You have worked hard to get to this point. If you look around you can find people who are living and going on with life after this diagnosis. There will be celebrations throughout communities, hospitals and local medical centers. This is a celebration to let people know how rewarding life can be after battling a cancer diagnosis.
As much as we study the cancer diagnosis we are aware that cancer has its effects on patients physically and mentally. As cancer survivorship increases so does the support and education to obtain a healthy lifestyle. There are many support groups that help with living life after cancer and its treatment.
Celebrate how far mesothelioma research has come and how nice it is to be a survivor on the first Sunday of June!
