Had a great conversation with another cancer destroyer. She’s pretty badass – having done his twice now and she’s younger than me. It was so encouraging and healing. There is a sense of deep comradery between two people who have fought the same battle. And things can be said freely in such company that are quite simply taboo elsewhere.
Misery loves company. But so does triumph, fear, resolve, anxiety, courage and uncertainty. We’re a mixed bag, cancer survivors. And we need to gather with frequency.
