You hear stories of childhood cancer – always focusing on the cancer. But what about after the battle is over – once it’s been won so to speak? At times, the battle to return to a normal life can be just as daunting as battle with the disease itself. It requires continued courage and strength to get back to your life when cancer is all you’ve known for so long.
