Survivorship

I recently attended a Survivorship conference. It changed me. Listening to people who have been through chemotherapy or people who have cared for people fighting cancer, does put things in a  different perspective. These are people who are trying their best to make each day count for their loved one.

A decade or two ago, we really did not seem to care about long term needs of people going through cancer therapy. Not many survived… so why stress about the long term effects.

Now things are different, people are being cured of their cancer. They have to deal with the effects from fingers being numb, heart muscle problems, secondary cancers, etc.

The big issue about fertility and having their own family.

Lots to thing about.
