Heroes Day: National Cancer Survivors Day

NATIONAL CANCER SURVIVORS DAY 2018 “Life after a Cancer Diagnosis is a Reality”

Lakeshore Cancer Center is the foremost Cancer clinic in Nigeria sorely dedicated to cancer diagnosis, treatment, and cancer education/awareness and support.

Part of our mission has been to dispel the myth and misconception that a cancer diagnosis is a death sentence, mainly through education and counseling of patients, caregivers, fellow health practitioners and the general public.

The National Cancer Survivors Day was first coined in 1987 with the very first event taking place in 1988.

It is usually marked on the first Sunday of June and in 2018 this will be on the 3rd of June.

We marked our own Heroes Day, Saturday, June 3, 2018.
