10 ways to honor a cancer survivor

At Community Health Network we believe that cancer survivors should be celebrated each day. If you know someone who is living with a history of cancer, take a moment to honor him or her. Find a way to let them know how happy you are that he or she is in your life. To get you thinking, here are 10 simple ways to honor a cancer survivor: 

  1. Mail a greeting card or write out words of appreciation 
  2. Pick up the phone to wish that person a happy Cancer Survivors Month
  3. Send a bouquet of flowers
  4. Go to lunch or out for coffee
  5. Give a small gift of appreciation
  6. Throw an impromptu party
  7. Take a hike or climb a hill to symbolize conquering a challenge
  8. Sign up for a 5k in his or her honor
  9. Take a memorable photo together
  10. Make a donation to a cancer charity in his or her name
