June is Cancer Survivor’s Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the nearly 17 million Americans who have bravely and successfully battled cancer. Individuals are considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis. Whether someone is still undergoing treatment or has long since won their battle against cancer, we celebrate all cancer survivors.

This June, Methodist Hospital proudly illuminates purple to honor the cancer survivors in our community and beyond. A lavender ribbon signifies a sign of support for those living with all types of cancer. Sometimes, people wear a rainbow of ribbons or a ribbon with many different colors to symbolize cancer survivorship.

At Methodist Hospital, we take a personalized and holistic approach to cancer treatment, and our highly skilled team will stay by your side through every stage of diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Learn more about cancer treatments and the specialty programs offered at Methodist Hospital.
