"The events are designed to connect and celebrate with those who have survived, inspire the recently diagnosed, offer support to family and loved ones and recognize those who have provided support along the way. 

"They also provide a forum for discussing the physical, social and emotional issues that many cancer survivors face during and following treatment. More than 15.5 million people in the United States are now living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer."
