Celebrate Survivorship. Inspire Strength.

June is National Cancer Survivor Month - a month dedicated to celebrating the survivorship of every person who has heard the dreaded phrase, "you have cancer." A person is a cancer survivor from the moment they receive their first diagnosis, throughout the rest of his or her life. 

We want all of our survivors to celebrate the achievements, big or small, along their cancer journey!

Join The Celebration.

Here is how you can celebrate and support survivors:

  • Post on social media using the hashtag #BeyondCancer.
  • Update your Facebook profile picture with the #BeyondCancer profile picture frame
  • Download and send the #BeyondCancer e-card to survivors, fighters, family and friends.

What is #BeyondCancer? Beyond Cancer is a way for survivors to emphasize their life beyond diagnosis and treatment. A life beyond cancer is possible - let's celebrate what that means for you and inspire others who may need it!
