Occasionally I have read that some survivor says that getting cancer was the best thing that ever happened to him. I think, “That person is insane.” We all have a story to tell. The story may help explain how we live our lives and why we are who we are. It may not; but I have not yet met a person who has lived with cancer and has not been changed by the experience. This story is about my experience living with cancer and participating in a recent clinical trial.
