My breast cancer experience is three years behind me, and I very much feel cancer receding into the background. It used to be on the top of mind all of the time—every kink, every bit of fatigue was a recurrence. That happens now but not as much. Instead, I catch myself, at quiet moments, thinking “My wish is that I stay cancer free. Please please please do not come back.” This chant plays for a minute or two in my mind. It is a deep and true and honest wish.
