Celebrating Cancer Survivors

| Comments (0)

By Lucy Richardson, MD Anderson staff writer

Saturday, June 4, through Friday, June 10, cancer survivors and caregivers were celebrated through a variety of activities and educational events in and around MD Anderson. The institution organizes annual Survivorship Week activities to commemorate National Cancer Survivor's Day, which is recognized nationally on the first Sunday in June.

The week kicked off with a motorcycle ride on Saturday morning sponsored by Riders for the Cure and continued with a series of events and classes focused on relaxation, arts and survivor support. The week concludes tonight with a celebration and Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park.

Throughout the week, we had the privilege of talking with many of the survivors and caregivers who participated in the events. We heard so many stories of resilience. We asked a few to share their perspective on what it really means to be a cancer survivor.
