National Cancer Survivors Day® Sunday, June 5, 2022
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual worldwide celebration of life held on the first Sunday in June. People with cancer are living longer due to improved care, screening and newer treatments. The term “cancer survivor” identifies a community of people with a history of cancer, either at the time of diagnosis, during or after treatment. The effects of cancer do not end when treatment ends.
The Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated, three-site center dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients and our communities. Staff of the Stephen and Barbara Slaggie Family Cancer Education Center, located in Rochester, Minnesota, are committed to providing up-to-date education and resources to empower cancer survivors to be active partners in their health journey.
Starting on Wednesday, July 6, the Cancer Education Center will kick off a free Survivorship Webinar Series to address the needs of cancer survivors. You can register at the links below. We look forward to having you join us.
