From the moment a patient is diagnosed with cancer, they become a survivor – and remain survivors through the rest of their lives. It is estimated that over 1.5 million people will be diagnosed with cancer.Two thirds of them will be survivors. Needs Beyond Medicine's annual fundraiser, canSURVIVE, is a Celebration of Cancer Survivors and a night dedicated to them. We cannot thank all of the survivors we have been able to photograph and share their individual stories on their cancer journey.
Survivor (noun) a person who is able to continue living their life successfully despite experiencing difficulties. (Cambridge Dictionary)
