Celebrating Survivorship

The Lurie Cancer Center supports the definition of cancer survivor as any person diagnosed with cancer "from the time of diagnosis and for the balance of life." First pioneered by the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship in 1996, they later expanded the definition to include family, friends and caregivers.

Held annually in hundreds of communities nationwide and around the world, National Cancer Survivors Day provides an opportunity for all people whose lives have been touched by cancer to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.
