WE CELEBRATE CANCER SURVIVORS!
Sunday is National Cancer Survivor’s Day. According to the National Cancer Institute, “An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also impacted by the survivorship experience and are therefore included in this definition.” (Adapted from the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship)
UC Irvine’s Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center’s physician oncologists, nurses and support staff provide support to our patients and their families for a positive journey to successful disease management and outcome. At UC Irvine, we continue to celebrate each patient’s journey as they survive their disease and for this, we celebrate all cancer survivors.
