Celebrating Ulman House resident and Maryland Proton Center’s patient, Chandler Stroup’s bell ringing as he completed weeks of radiation treatment.
What do you think of when you hear the word survivor?
Perhaps you think of perseverance, overcoming a major obstacle, or the deserted island reality TV show.
In the cancer community, the word survivor, and National Cancer Survivors Day which intends to celebrate survivors on the first Sunday in June, carries a very different meaning for different people.
On National Cancer Survivors Day, we invite you to reflect on your perception of survivorship, to consider how to use it mindfully and sensitively around those who have been impacted by cancer, and to deepen your understanding of all it entails.
