National Cancer Survivors Day
Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic
A cancer diagnosis can have a long and lasting impact. We believe that it is important to recognize the effects of cancer in order to better support cancer survivors and their loved ones. This year’s National Cancer Survivors Day is on Sunday, June 5. Here at Chapa-De, we would like to use today as a chance to talk about the ways cancer can affect those diagnosed, and their loved ones. The effects can be both physical and mental.
About National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day is held on the first Sunday in June each year. It is hosted by the National Cancer Survivors Foundation.

They are also advocates for improving the quality of life of cancer survivors during and after their treatment.
According to their website, National Cancer Survivors Day is a day to celebrate. It is a chance to:
- Celebrate cancer survivors
- Inspire those with cancer diagnoses
- Support families
- Outreach to your community

Chronic Care Services
Even once cancer is gone, the effects can last. It is important for cancer survivors to be both proactive and preventative with their health care. Many cancer survivors can benefit from care designed for patients with a chronic condition. Chapa-De offers Chronic Care Services to our patients. This is designed to treat any patients with on-going concerns. Our providers offer compassionate and comfortable care. We want to ensure that our patients get the treatment they need in order to live fulfilling lives.
Behavioral Health Services
Cancer can be scary. The rates of survival are growing each year. But it can be intimidating to face a cancer diagnosis for yourself, or someone you care about. We are here for you. At Chapa-De, we have a team of psychiatrists and therapists ready to help you process whatever impacts cancer may have on your mental and emotional health.
