Join Us for Survivorship Day, June 1

Scarf Tying

June is National Cancer Survivor Month, an awareness and education campaign celebrating all survivors, the newly diagnosed, those in treatment, and those who have completed cancer treatment. Thanks to spectacular advances in cancer research and treatment, more than 16.9 million people in the U.S. are cancer survivors living with, through, and beyond their disease.

The Duke Supportive Care & Survivorship Center at Duke Cancer Institute has set aside June 1 for its annual commemoration of this important occasion — Survivorship Day 2022.

Whether you’re a cancer survivor, friend, loved one, or medical professional, this is a day for everyone. We hope you will join us for a jam-packed day featuring virtual expert panel discussions with audience Q&A and virtual interactive workshops.

“Survivorship Day is a treasured DCI event that each year celebrates survivors, supports individuals and families facing cancer, and inspires the newly diagnosed,” said Cheyenne Corbett, PhD, director of cancer support and survivorship. “While we are unable to come together in person for this event, our doctors, therapists, child life specialists, social workers, self-image consultants and other experts nevertheless remain committed to this annual tradition by hosting online interactive workshops and panel discussions, and recording video presentations. Our team stands united, on this day and every day, to raise awareness about the challenges that cancer survivors face.”
