June 2*: National Cancer Survivors Day

sunflower-in-vase-112829185350y1TThe first Sunday in June is National Cancer Survivors Day. A survivor is anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer (this morning, three months ago, thirty years ago . . . ) and is still alive and kicking!

According to the official website, this holiday 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.” In other words, it’s all about rejoicing with and helping all cancer patients and their families, who may still be struggling with the implications of cancer, no matter how long ago they were first diagnosed.

“In your unfailing love preserve my life,
that I may obey the statutes of your mouth.”

Psalm 119:88

Don’t forget that June 2 is also National Bubba Day! Have fun, Bubba!
