A Thousand Times Yes

There’s a lot of truth in this oncology nursing article about young adult cancer survivors. It covers physical, emotion, practical, and even spiritual needs. The only thing it doesn’t address is how even the word survivor has a slippery definition: people use it to cover everything from “beat the disease” to “at least he’s still breathing.” I don’t consider myself a survivor, but I identify with a lot of the stuff in this article anyway.
