National Cancer Survivors Day

The CoC encourages your CoC-accredited program to organize an event in honor of National Cancer Survivors Day®.   Sponsored by Coping®, this day is always the first Sunday in June and was established to bring cancer survivors together showing that there is life after receiving a diagnosis of cancer.  

June 2 marks the 26th Annual National Cancer Survivors Day.  Take this opportunity to promote your program and your CoC Accreditation.  Reach out to your community and sponsor activities that:

  • Recognize cancer survivors
  • Support patients with cancer
  • Screen and educate community members on cancer prevention and detection

Make sure your register your event on the official National Cancer Survivors Day website at  Register your event on this site to gain access to a number of resources and tools to help you plan for and execute a successful event.   

To help you promote your event within your program and the community, the CoC has developed a poster that you can customize, download, and print. CoC-accredited programs can  access and download the poster by logging into CoC Datalinks and clicking on the marketing link. 

Please let the CoC know about your celebration.  Please send photos and information to Susan Rubin.
