Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers held a BBQ to celebrate the survival of their cancer patients Friday afternoon.
One in every two men and one in every three women will hear a doctor say, "You have cancer" in their lifetime.
Hundreds of cancer survivors and fighters gathered in Colorado Springs Friday to share stories of their struggles and their successes.
They say seeing all of the other people there, that have gone through something similar, is uplifting. One survivor said that it made her feel like she wasn't so alone in her fight.
Sunday is National Cancer Survivors Day.
