Ahead of the 36th annual National Cancer Survivors Day® Celebration of Life, the NCSD Foundation has updated its National Cancer Survivors Resource Guide.
FRANKLIN, TN, USA, May 26, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ -- The 2023 National Cancer Survivors Resource Guide is a carefully curated list of national organizations that offer information, resources, and support to cancer survivors and their families. Divided into categories by cancer type, the Resource Guide makes it easy for people with cancer to find resources matched to their needs.
In the U.S. today, there are more than 18.1 million people living with a history of cancer. This represents about 5.4% of the population. That number is expected to reach more than 26 million by 2040.
As the number of cancer survivors continues to grow, it is becoming ever more important to address the unique needs of this group of people. The NCSD Foundation aims for the 2023 National Cancer Survivors Resource Guide to be another tool people with cancer can use to get support.
Cancer support organizations, hospitals, and treatment centers are encouraged to print copies of the Resource Guide to distribute to cancer survivors on National Cancer Survivors Day®.
