Jen Hodson must have been in my head when she wrote this article! It is everything I feel and have felt, but didn’t know how to express it. I am a cancer survivor of over 4 years after a diagnosis of uterine cancer that metastasized. I am thankful for my oncologist and nurses that have supported me and allowed me to be myself through this journey.

This! I am 16 months post treatment for stage 2, type B Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When told I am in remission, people say some variation of “Oh, you are cured. Great. That is in the past. Move on.” There is no “cure” for cancer. The very treatments used on cancer are known to cause cancer. I spent four months having my body pumped full of poison (ABVD chemo) and additional six weeks having radiation. Fatigue, neuropathy, chemo brain, anxiety, etc.are very real. Cancer has changed me forever.

This article is spot on! I wish there was more awareness around how difficult recovery is post treatment. Sometimes I think it is more difficult than the treatment itself, just due to the complete lack of understanding and support. Thank you, Jen, for writing this article.
