Rachel says further which means thinking of cancer as a battle: “My friend D., who worked as a social worker in a hospice for a decade at the beginning of his professional life, decided to view his diagnosis of metastatic cancer as an uninvited dance partner, someone to approach with curiosity, grace and humor as they move through time together. and space. “

Maaike says further which means thinking of cancer as a battle: “I survived cancer, but I never thought the battle in analogy was helpful. The analogy I thought was most appropriate was that cancer was like staying in a storm. It was not possible – as it was with time – to fight. You just have to hold on tight and hope you get through it. And then, when you’re done with the treatment, and when we hope you’ll finally breathe again, you need to inspect the wreck and pick up the pieces and put together whatever suits you. And, yes, you can find victory in that. ”

Carmen goes on which means thinking of cancer as a battle: “Mom specifically requested that her obituary say she died after an‘ adventure ’with cancer. She and I had a lot of adventures in 19 years together, so this made sense to me. She felt that, as horrible and brutal as the experience of cancer was, there was too much beauty in it to be called a battle. And that was true – our community showed us so much love. Now, 20 years later, I can fully appreciate what a gift it was to be able to frame that experience into an adventure. ”
