Nashville declared SurvivorVille on National Survivors Day June 7, 2015! Nashville’s Mayor Karl Dean makes official announcement at press conference in front of hundreds of women cancer survivors.
Cancer is a line in the sand of life. If it was cured tomorrow, more than 1.5 million women would be spared a diagnosis every year. But the more than 7 million women survivors in America will continue to face post treatment issues they never expected. The impact of the disease doesn't end just because treatment does.
Helping women learn to navigate the muddy waters of survivorship and re-enter their lives as contributing members of their families and society as a whole is the mission of the Women Survivors Alliance (WSA).
The WSA signature event, the National Women’s Survivors Convention (NWSC), achieves their mission in three vital ways:
In conjunction with the city of Nashville, the National Women Survivors Alliance will create “SURVIVOR Fest” which will be kicked off with Scott Hamilton, Olympic Gold Medalist, Cancer Survivor and the Honorary Chair for the event.
This high energy, life-altering weekend will bring together thousands of survivors, co-survivors, BFFs and their families to Nashville, TN. And it will occur in conjunction with the nationally proclaimed National Survivors Day (always the first Sunday in June).
The events will include:
