On Sunday, June 5, 2022, we will commemorate National Cancer Survivors Day®. The Colorado Cancer Coalition is collaborating with partners across the state to host multiple Survivors Day events.
NCSD is the day each year to pause and honor those who are living with a history of cancer for their strength and courage. It is also a day to acknowledge the contributions of their families, friends, and healthcare providers, as well as those engaged in cancer research.
For millions of people living with cancer, National Cancer Survivors Day® is a treasured Celebration of Life observed annually on the first Sunday in June*.
Anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life – is a cancer survivor, as defined by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation.
June 5th, 2022 – 12:00 to 4:00 PM
Red Rocks Medical Center, 400 Indiana St., Golden CO 80401
In addition to being well-known for providing leading-edge technology and comprehensive cancer care, Red Rocks Medical Center also hosts one of the largest National Cancer Survivors Day in Colorado each year. Join hundreds of patients and survivors to celebrate survivorship on June 5, 2022. There are many opportunities to sponsor, donate prizes and food, and participate in the day’s festivities. Proceeds benefit Ray of Hope cancer patients.
June 5 – 1:00 to 2:30 PM
“Up Your Wellness Game, Tips for Cancer Survivors”, will take place on June 5th from 1-2:30 pm and will feature nutritional tips from a dietitian, a patient testimony, and information on how to incorporate movement into your daily routine.
The CCC needs volunteer support at the June Survivors Day events as well as other exciting in-person events coming up throughout the month.
Help us by staffing a CCC event table and spread awareness about cancer prevention and survivorship. This year, we have an interactive spin wheel to encourage conversation and bring people to the table.
