Plus three comments for readers:

Rachel says What does it mean to consider cancer a battle?: “My friend Dr., who worked as a social worker in a nursing home for a decade early in his career, chose to view his diagnosis of metastatic cancer as an uninvited partner, someone he approached with curiosity, agility, and humor as they moved together through time and space. “.

mike says What does it mean to consider cancer a battle?: “I’m a cancer survivor, but I’ve never felt that the battle analogy worked. The analogy I felt most appropriate was that having cancer was like being in a storm. It wasn’t—as with the weather—something you couldn’t fight. You just have to Hold on tight and hope to get past it. And then, when you’re done with therapy, and when you hope to finally breathe again, you have to clear the wreckage, pick up the pieces, and reassemble yourself the way you still fit. And yes, you can win that.”

Carmen says What does it mean to consider cancer a battle?: “My mom specifically requested that her obituary say she died after an ‘adventure’ with cancer. She and I had many adventures during their 19 years together, so this made sense to me. I felt that, as horrible and brutal the cancer experience was, there was also So much beauty that cannot be described as a battle. And it was true – our society showed us so much love. Now, 20 years later, I can fully appreciate the gift it has been to be able to frame the experience as an adventure.”
