Dan I didn't answer the question and agree with some of the others...
I think we are cancer survivors the moment we take our first action to get well. For me it happened in my urologists office soon after he walked in and told me and my wife "well there's a little cancer down there". I was there watching him describe what actions were available to me ~ and as foggy as that memory may be ~ I remember thinking that immediately I was going to have to do something because I wasn't ready to die yet. I survived that day and each stepping stone along the way.
To me those are better answer selections to a different question ~ When do you call yourself cured?
Edited to answer my own question using the above table: When do you call yourself cured? I won't ~ I don't like the term
