This Sunday, June 5 is National Cancer Survivors Day. There are nearly 12 million cancer survivors in the United States and an additional 4,000 Americans join those ranks every day when they are told, ?You have cancer.? In honor of this day, LIVESTRONG has joined forces with Stand Up To Cancer to recognize the bravery of these survivors and fight the stigma associated with the disease. Beginning Friday, June 3, thru the weekend, all people affected by cancer are encouraged to vent their anger or frustration or show support for a loved one by going to www.livestrong.standup2cancer.org to donate their Facebook status. Lance and Laura are among the first to declare their feelings towards the disease.
Lance said, ?I am a survivor. Cancer, we are bringing a fight.? Laura Ziskin, co-founder of Stand Up To Cancer/producer of the Spider-Man franchise, says, ?I am a survivor. Cancer, you can?t survive ME!?
LIVESTRONG and Stand Up To Cancer hope people will follow their example and give cancer a piece of their mind. You can too.
