At what point are you considered a ‘survivor’ of cancer? After surgery? After treatment? After a year? No. You are a survivor from the moment you are diagnosed. Once a survivor, always a survivor. I challenge you to take your survivorship and be an inspiration to all who know you with surTHRIVorship. Turn your adversity into an opportunity to inspire others.
