There are nearly 15.5 million cancer survivors in the U.S. alone, each with their unique experiences and needs. On Sunday, June 4, thousands of people in communities across the country and around the world will honor cancer survivors and celebrate life on the 30th Annual National Cancer Survivors Day®.
The American Cancer Society offers a number of resources for survivors. Check out the links below.
csn.cancer.org The American Cancer Society Cancer Survivors Network® was created by and for people living with cancer and their families. When someone joins the free online community, they can get and give support, connect with others, and find resources. They can also tell their own story through personal expressions like music and art.
ACS.MyLifeLine.org Free personalized webpages help patients and caregivers connect with family and friends, allowing them to share their cancer journey, get support, and focus on healing. They can:
• Share updates and photos with selected family and friends in one secure place.
• Get the help they need by organizing meals, rides to treatment, and more through the Helping Calendar.
• Feel empowered by messages of love and support from friends and family.
• Review and share cancer resources vetted by experts.
