I've written volumes on my website about the struggles I've faced as a cancer survivor and all that's challenged me. I can neither leave this situation, nor have I ever been willing to accept some things about it. All I've ever been able to do is CHANGE, to grow, and to evolve. I'm not the same person that I was before cancer, nor am I even the same person I was immediately after my cancer fight. As I look back on five years of cancer survivorship, I can see three major periods of time where I crashed and burned to the ground hard, but then experienced tremendous growth and evolution afterwards as I had finally let go of the old, and embraced the new. Change is hard, but it's been the only way forward for me.
