Did you know that June 1st is National Cancer Survivor's Day? The theme this year is celebrating survivorship. I hope you took some time today to do something special for yourself. 
After fighting colon cancer, Maria decided to make a bucket list to celebrate her survivorship. She travelled, went horseback riding and cross-country skiing, walked the Relay For Life Survivors’ Victory Lap and spoke at colon cancer awareness events. And she set out to fundraise … 
“Two years ago, my biggest dream came true. I started a colon cancer fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society – shake your booty for colon cancer, a 3-hour zumba salsathon. With more than 100 participants each year, we have raised just over $45,000 for colon cancer awareness! This is my way of saying thank you!”

Happy National Cancer Survivors Day to Maria and all cancer survivors. Tell us about how you celebrate
