Celebrating National Cancer Survivors Day

National Cancer Survivors Day is this Sunday, June 4. It is an annual, treasured celebration of life held in hundreds of communities nationwide and around the world on the first Sunday every 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. Cancer survivors around the world are honored and have the opportunity to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding and inspiring.

Just about everyone on the planet has been touched by cancer in some way. You either have dealt with the disease personally, or you know someone close to you who has. It’s a day we commemorate with great pride at Concorde and celebrate the day as a great commemoration of health care awareness and celebration of loved ones who have survived.

National Cancer Survivors Day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 15.5 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones and recognize those who have supported them along the way. It’s 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’ qualities of life.

Concorde vehemently supports National Cancer Survivors Day as a great vehicle for health care awareness and sends best wishes to all cancer survivors, their loved ones and supporters.health care awarenesshealth care awareness

“I have taken the MA program and the LVN program. Concorde is a wonderful school. There is a difference between passion and a paycheck, and most of my instructors had a passion for what they do. The program was challenging but well worth it. I love this college!”

“I decided to go to school because I was tired of working dead-end jobs. … When I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I needed a better life for me, for my child, for my husband, and just to better myself.”
