NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Some Tennessee Titans and the cheerleaders took time to celebrate those who have won the fight against cancer.

More than 300 cancer survivors from Saint Thomas and Baptist Hospital gathered at LP field for Cancer Survivors' Day. The event brings patients and their families together to celebrate their victory over the disease.

Visitors got a chance to tour the locker rooms and meet with the Titan's rookie class. Survivors said it's comforting to meet with other people who know what they've gone through.

"I see where other people have come full circle with their disease, as well as I. I know that there are people out there that are still struggling and there's still hope for anyone with any type of cancer," said Randolph Salyers.

The event coincides with National Cancer Survivors' Day that is celebrated in June every year.
