PEOPLE ASSUME THAT WHEN

treatment IS FINISHED,

cancer is finished

.

It's not that simple. The people around you return to their normal routines,

but your life is forever changed. Treatment might be over, but the doctor's

appointments, the side effects, the medical expenses aren't over. It wasn't until I

was finished with treatment that I could even process what had happened to me.

It became difficult emotionally in a whole new way. Since I was no longer fighting

for my life, now I had the time to process what had just happened in my life.”
