World Rose Day is celebrated on September 22 for cancer patients as a way to show support, understanding, and hope. It is an international day of unity, solidarity, and celebration of the courage of those who have survived or are living with cancer.
History of World Rose Day
The origin of World Rose Day is credited to a Canadian girl living with a rare form of blood cancer (Askin’s Tumor) named Melinda Rose. During that time she noticed that there were many people affected by the disease in her community but there was no way for them to connect and support each other. She decided to create a happy world for those affected by cancer to feel connected and supported.
