There are many events that celebrate cancer survivorship, both in Houston and nationwide. We encourage cancer survivors and their loved ones to participate in these events to meet other survivors, learn how to cope with life after cancer and to raise awareness and funds to find better treatments and prevention methods for their cancer.
