Cancer Survivor

Calaway • Young Cancer Center Honors Cancer Survivors


An individual is considered a survivor from the time of their first diagnosis through the rest of their life. Every cancer survivor has a personal and unique story filled with emotions, adversity and challenges, during and after treatments.

June is recognized as National Cancer Survivor Month and provides each of us the opportunity to celebrate those whose lives have been affected by cancer and learn about the many challenges that accompany survivorship.


Join Valley View’s Calaway • Young Cancer Center this June as we honor local cancer survivors and their loved ones.

Go on an Adventure

Make memories with the survivors in your life – hike your favorite trail, try a new activity or go on a vacation together.

Spend Quality Time

Make time for the survivors in your life – stop by for an afternoon visit, go out to coffee or lunch or pick up the phone and have a conversation – just spending time and being there is what’s important.

Small Token of Appreciation

Letting survivors know that you’re thinking of them is a great way to honor them throughout the month. Sending a handwritten note or flowers is always appreciated.
