There’s help out there

Dealing with cancer is a personal journey, just like the process of overcoming it. National Cancer Survivors Day honors the strength, optimism, and determination of cancer survivors.

Cancer survivors’ journeys demonstrate the progress made in science, the commitment of healthcare professionals, and the support of loved ones. Survivorship is a major accomplishment, signifying the conclusion of a challenging period and the beginning of a new phase of care. Every survivor’s story is a source of inspiration for individuals currently battling cancer, showing that it is possible to overcome it.

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis and treatment is not easy. It often involves support from friends and family or even strangers. Regularly engaging with other survivors can help maintain well-being throughout the recovery journey. Listening to the stories and experiences of others can offer valuable insights and perspectives. Your health care can provide you with information about support groups or resources in your area.
