          SUMMARY:  Designates Sunday, June 7, 2015, as California Cancer  
          Survivors Day, to coincide with National Cancer Survivors Day.   
          Specifically, this resolution makes the following legislative  
          findings:


          1)National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual, treasured  
            celebration of life that is held in hundreds of communities  
            nationwide, and around the world, on the first Sunday of June to  
            celebrate those who have survived, an inspiration for those  
            recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an  








                                                                       ACR 62


                                                                      Page  2





            outreach to the community.


          2)California Cancer Survivors Day provides an opportunity for all  
            people living with a history of cancer, including America's more  
            than 14 million cancer survivors, to connect with each other,  
            celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported  
            them along the way.


          3)Due to advances in cancer prevention, early detection,  
            treatment, and follow up care, more people than ever before are  
            surviving the disease.  Nonetheless, surviving cancer can leave  
            a host of problems from physical, emotional, and financial  
            hardships which often persist for years after diagnosis and  
            treatment.


          4)The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation believes that more  
            resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation are  
            needed to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors, both  
            during and after treatment.


          FISCAL EFFECT:  None
