I'm not sure what to make of "survivor," "fighting" cancer etc. To me it's just life, and I'm glad to be here to to be part of it. I've lost friends who went through much worse than I have so far, from a lot of things other than cancer--car crashes, war, murder, heart attacks, fire. I'm happy every day that I'm a living thing with a functioning brain. I'm just really glad to be here, while I'm here. Or as George Burns used to say, "At my age I'm happy to be anywhere." There will be millennia to come when what's left of me, I suppose, will be not so self-aware.
