What is something you wish people knew about life with cancer?

      Life with cancer. Happens to other people, right? Is anyone ever ready to hear those words? And for me, the original diagnosis was CLL, which I researched and felt confident about fighting. Then, a week later, came the blow that it was MCL. A bit more frightening and devastating. After 11 months of W&W, I did 6 rounds of BR. Remission. After 4 years, I have relapsed. Now on Calquence. No symptoms-I work full time, have a good energy level, and a great quality of life. But I have cancer. The thought is always there, floating around in the back of your thoughts. It’s scary. It can be debilitating. I take a deep breath and move forward. I have cancer. I also have a great husband, great kids, great friends. So which should I focus on? You got it-the people and things that bring me joy. With MCL, the cancer will always be there, waiting to raise its ugly head again. So let the fear and thoughts visit you. But never let them live with you…
