A party? Travel? Donation? Group hug? Tell us how you’ve celebrated being a cancer survivor.

June 1 is National Cancer Survivors Day, and we want to know how you – or a loved one – has celebrated survivorship.

Celebrate?My understanding is that "cancer "is always in the body to some degree even after treatment.Just a question of "if" it comes back at some date in the future due to various combinations of personal factors.Looking back it seems a realization of what a shock it has been to go through this and the profound changes "it" has forced on me and those close to me.More a feeling of relief,unbelief,and a depth of fear I never realized was possible.Like people who have gone through a long war, and faced a personal injustice just glad it's over and don't even wont to think/talk about it again.
