Hello everyone. This is my first time posting on this board, I just signed up for it today actually. I was partially inspired to sign up after reading a CNN article about how childhood cancer survivors are less likely to get married, although "inspired" is probably the wrong word since it is a bit of a downer.
Here is the article: http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/10/21/childhood.cancer.survivors.marriage/index.html
This is also interesting because looking at these boards for Young cancer survivors it looks like dating etc. is a pretty big topic. Although it definitely makes sense and I agree with what a lot of people have to say. My longest relationship almost broke up with me several times, once due to fertility concerns, and a few more times just because she was scared it was going to come back and I was going to die.
I am 18 years out of treatment, and like 10 years out of getting regular MRIs, but my cancer is still a subject that somehow manages to dominate my thoughts still.
Anyway, read the article and tell me what you think!
