More About National Cancer Survivor’s Day

Observed annually on the first Sunday in June, National Cancer Survivor’s Day has been set aside to “demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality.”

The day is a way for survivors to share their journey and offer hope and inspiration to those who have been newly diagnosed. Cancer survivors know the emotions and challenges associated with receiving a cancer diagnosis. They also know where the resources and support are for newly diagnosed cancer patients. The day encourages a celebration for survivors and their families. The day also offers a wellspring of support and outreach to cancer patients everywhere.
HOW TO OBSERVE #CancerSurvivorsDay #NCSD2020

Each year, communities, hospitals and support groups host events and celebrations around the United States honoring cancer survivors. Events may include parades, carnivals, art exhibits, contests, and testimonies. President George W. Bush and the National Cancer Institute director each included a commencement at the 2008 celebration. Attend an event or organize one to show your support. Other ways to celebrate include:

Post a photo on social media showing your support for cancer survivors.
Share your story, journey of cancer survivor-ship.

More About WEPCO Federal Credit Union

Established on April 24, 1950, the Credit Union was first named Local 676 UPA Federal Credit Union. The Credit Union began with 9 members, $37.50, and operated out of a one room office in the Westvaco Local 676 Union Hall on Main Street in Westernport, Maryland. We currently have six locations in LaVale, Oakland and Bloomington Maryland and Keyser and Kingwood West Virginia.

Over the years, WEPCO Federal Credit Union has indeed grown quite a bit. However, we at WEPCO still uphold the credit union motto "Not for Profit, Not for Charity but for Service". Even though WEPCO has grown to over $205 million in assets with more than 25,766 members, WEPCO Federal Credit Union still makes member service their first priority, and always will!
