Helping Cancer Survivors Celebrate Life

Helping Cancer Survivors Celebrate Life

Once a doctor diagnoses a person with cancer, it never goes away. Treatment is successful for many people and it sends their cancer into remission, but they will always be survivors.

The first Sunday in June is Cancer Survivors Day. Nearly 14 million in the people in the U.S. continue to survive after a cancer diagnosis. According to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, a survivor is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. That means that while the severity of the disease may decrease, it never fully goes away. It still impacts every part of a person’s life and can stay scary and difficult for years. This is why Homewatch CareGivers recognizes the importance of helping these survivors celebrate life.
