Celebrating the End of Your Cancer Treatment!

Roswell Park

Most cancer survivors will tell you they have two extremely vivid memories: the moment they received their diagnosis and the moment they finally finished treatment. We can’t think of anything more worthy of a celebration than the latter, so we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to share their stories of parties, trips, ringing the Victory Bell and more!

How did you celebrate the end of treatment?

  • We went on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach! 
  • My son rang the bell in the Lobby for all to hear that he completed 30 rounds of brain radiation! Couldn't be a happier day! Then we were able to attend the Carly's Club Christmas party that evening!
  • Honestly, I spent the whole weekend at home watching movies with my family. I wouldn’t have wanted anything else – my world was perfect at that moment.
  • Went out to dinner with my beautiful wife.
  • I celebrated by giving my radiation team some thank you gifts, giving my oncologist a big hug, then my husband & I went to celebrate by having my favorite beer (just one) & some pretzels!
  • I think I went for movies and ice cream! That's what I remember at least!
  • I spent time with family and friends and we all had cake.
  • I ran through the fountain!
  • A whole group of my friends and family released lanterns into the night sky and said goodbye to cancer.
  • I rang the Victory Bell and then signed up to run my first 5K that summer. #RoswellStrong
  • When Carly’s Club kids finish treatment, the pediatric team sprays them with silly string, gives them a cookie cake and balloons, and everyone cheers and celebrates together!
  • I watched the sunrise over a lake with a big cup of tea.
  • I made a list of things I was grateful for and also goals I wanted to accomplish in the upcoming year.
  • My girlfriends and I went to Vegas!
  • It was the fourth of July so I watched the fireworks with my loved ones and cheered until I lost my voice.
  • My boyfriend and I bought a puppy together!
