June 11, 2020

In the United States, there are over 16.9 million people who have had a diagnosis of cancer and are still living with it or are cancer-free. Whether you or a loved one are in treatment or remission, this is a month to celebrate a Survivor’s strength, accomplishments, and perseverance. During this stressful time in our country, when we are facing a global health pandemic, please do not let that impede you or your loved one’s progress. Continue to eat healthy, participate in physical activity and engage in activities that bring you peace. Call your health care providers ahead of time to ascertain their safety protocols and keep your appointment. Continue to practice physical distancing of six feet, wear your mask when in public, wash your hands regularly, and incorporate other safety recommendations. During June, celebrate with a card, a phone call, social media post, special dinner, or any other creative way. Celebrate you, your loved ones, and all Cancer Survivors.
