The World Rose Day honours cancer patients worldwide every year on the 22nd of September. The day seeks to bring happiness and hope to their lives and to remind them of their resolve and positive results in the fight against cancer.
The history and significance of World Rose Day
In 1996 we observed the first World Rose Day in memory of Melinda Rose from Canada, a 12-year-old patient. Rose, a rare form of blood cancer, was diagnosed with an Askin tumour in 1994. Despite physicians predicting that she would only live for a few weeks, Melinda Rose lived more than three years.
Roses, cards, and donations are offered to patients and caregivers, who play an important role in this difficult journey.
As we all know, combating cancer calls for physical and psychological strength, and events like World Rose Day give patients the strength they need internally and encourage them to continue working even when their chips are down.
