June 3, 2018 is the 31st annual National Cancer Survivors Day! Observed each year on the first Sunday in June, this day honors survivors, those currently in the fight against cancer, and all loved ones who provide support along the way. While celebrating life, National Cancer Survivors Day also brings awareness to the many challenges cancer patients face during and after treatment.
The words survivor and survivorship can have different meanings for different people. Some people think of someone who has completed treatment and doesn’t have any signs of cancer. Others define survivorship from cancer as the time from diagnosis throughout the rest of a person’s life. No matter your definition, living with bladder cancer can be physically and emotionally challenging for patients, loved ones, and caregivers from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
