Hello CanCare Faith Community,
On the first Sunday in June each year, the nonprofit National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation rallies its forces and resources to promote National Cancer Survivors Day in the U.S. and worldwide, as it has done since 1988. The NCSD Foundation bills the holiday as a “celebration of life” where survivors — described as anyone who has a history of the disease, from the point of diagnosis through the remainder of life — gather with friends, families, and supporters to raise awareness, spread information, provide services, and honor other survivors, all to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be full and fruitful.
Participating in National Cancer Survivors Day is an effective way to provide support and encouragement to those facing cancer in your congregation and around the world. Here are a few ways your faith community can participate.
During the Service
o cancer survivors
o current caregivers of cancer survivors
o people who have cared for someone facing cancer.
o All those who know someone who is currently facing cancer.
