Celebrating Cancer Survivors

June is National Cancer Survivor Month, a time to celebrate and recognize cancer survivors, inspire those recently diagnosed, and, most importantly, to celebrate life.

During the month, cancer survivors and supporters in communities around the world unite to celebrate life and raise awareness of the challenges faced by cancer survivors.

It is a time for everyone to celebrate, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional.  The month provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.  It is also a time to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship in order to promote more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.

Thanks to advances in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and follow-up care, more people than ever before are surviving the disease.  According to the official website for the National Cancer Survivors Day, more than 15.5 million people are alive today after being diagnosed with cancer in the United States alone.

However, surviving cancer can leave a host of problems in its wake.  Cancer survivors may face numerous challenges during and after treatment, including limited access to cancer specialists and promising new treatments, denial of health insurance and life insurance coverage, difficulty finding jobs, and economic burdens due to mounting medical expenses and lost wages.  Cancer survivors are also at greater risk for developing second cancers and other health conditions.

If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with cancer, please contact our center today.  Whether you would like to discuss treatment options, or get a second option, we are here to help in any way we can.
