Steve Pake's Top Lessons Learned as a Cancer Survivor

This is a collection of writings that encompass my Top Lessons Learned in my years as a cancer survivor. My first such essay, "Steve Pake's Top 10 Guide to Surviving a Young Adult Cancer" was published in April of 2014, after suffering a year of depression, post-traumatic stress, and terrible anxiety two years out from my cancer diagnosis. My latest in this category, "Top 5 Lessons Learned in 5 Years of Cancer Survivorship," is similar to, but really a complete ground-up re-write of my Top 4 lessons learned that I had posted a year ago. If you've read that one, it's worth it to give the latest Top 5 a read as well.
