WhoCDC cancer survivors are featured in the new exhibit, CANCER: Survivors in Focus, which highlights the public health impact of living with, through, and beyond cancer. The exhibit will be open June 17 through September 10, 2013. Several survivors will be available for pictures and interviews on Thursday, June 20.
