Celebrate Life



 

Yesterday I had my 6 month scope to check for my bladder cancer.  AND I passed.  No cancer.  Next test in 3 months.

I did do a private dance of joy - shed a few tears of relief - and then came home.

But I can't help but wonder why I don't wear pink ribbons - spout off about cancer prevention - get involved in cancer groups - I don't feel like a cancer survivor - maybe 'cause I am waiting for some magic number of years that will make me feel like a survivor??

Do we ever survive cancer completely?? or do we just survive this battle and finally eventually lose the war??

Maybe for me this feels all too private a battle.  

And maybe for me I choose to celebrate life - today....... and for all the todays I have left.
