I’m cancer free.
I’ll add another word to that statement: now.
That extra word is especially significant because until ten days ago I thought the original statement applied to me and I had no idea that for the last year—I was wrong.
It was a skin cancer, a carcinoma that wasn’t likely to cause serious problems in the near future, if at all. Still, it would have continued to consume tissue on my back and, given it was centered over my spine, could have eventually invaded bone. If I’d gone this long with a different form of skin cancer I’d be in big trouble.
I’m light skinned and blue eyed so all you have to do is whisper sun and I start to smolder. The cancer also runs in my family.
