Now in its 26th year, National Cancer Survivors Day is a worldwide celebration of those who have fought cancer. It is one day each year that we pause to honor everyone who is living with a history of cancer – including America’s nearly 14 million cancer survivors. A survivor is considered anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.
