People acknowledge milestones in their cancer survivorship and treatment in a variety of ways.
For some, the one-year and five-year cancer-free dates are very important though other special dates may be remembered too, such as the end of chemotherapy or radiation, the date of your cancer diagnosis, or the anniversary of surgery to treat your cancer.
Cancer is a life-changing event, not only for the patient but for family and friends too. Recognizing milestones can help survivors put their cancer experience into perspective, and acknowledge the changes in their lives.
Your “Cancerversary” can also be an opportunity to celebrate your own successful completion of treatment, and the fact that you are a cancer survivor.
For some people, remembering a birthday, anniversary or another special date associated with a loved one who may have lost their battle with cancer is another way to honor their memory in a special way.

CANCER - We’ve all been affected by it in some way, whether it’s ourselves, our families or our friends. This year, cancer will be the leading killer in the world. In the U.S. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. BUT THERE IS HOPE… Did you know when cancer is found early, 90% SURVIVE? Every woman, regardless of age, race or socioeconomic background deserves to have the opportunity of survival.
We are fighting cancer a different way: CATCHING IT EARLY. By shifting this nation’s focus from just searching for a cure to education, prevention and early detection, we can save lives TODAY. By empowering ourselves and the women we love to become medical consumers; to listen to our bodies, ask the right questions of our doctors and seek second opinions, we can prevent cancer and, if we still end up with it, detect cancer in its earliest stages. At Cancer Schmancer, we aren’t reinventing the wheel. We are shedding light on a method that works to end mortality due to late stage diagnosis. And that’s EARLY DETECTION. Join us in saving lives.
