National Cancer Survivors Day 2015

Today, June 7, 2015, is the 28th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. At Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, every day is a celebration of breast cancer survivors – women and men whose worlds have been forever changed by the words, “You have breast cancer.”

“8 Things We Want Cancer Survivors to Know Today” is a message to celebrate all who have faced breast cancer and honor those who are still fighting. And we invite you to join us in celebrating the survivors right here in Atlanta by taking a look at our Monday Moms series of stories.
