National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual celebration of life that is held in hundreds of communities nationwide, and around the world on the first Sunday of June. It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community. It is a day for everyone, whether you are a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional. It is also a day 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.
3rd Annual National Cancer Survivors Day 2023
Cancer Community Clubhouse hosted their 3rd annual National Cancer Survivors Day celebration (Hope Grows Here) on June 4, 2023 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. We were so pleased to once again be able to host an event that recognizes survivors. This year in addition to providing fun activities, bingo, raffle, silent auction, and many non-profit tables with valuable information, we also added a new speaker series to the celebration. Our keynote speaker, Haley Smoot, Director of Public Policy at the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship traveled all the way from Washington, D.C. to participate. We are so grateful to our northern Nevada community for attending this event. Thank you for supporting Cancer Community Clubhouse and those who have been affected by cancer. With your support we are able to continue vital survivorship programs in Northern Nevada.
