Question: How does one determine that he/she has reached that five-year point all cancer survivors aspire to? Is it when treatment begins or is it when it ends (aside from the hormonal therapy)?
I am somewhere around reaching Year 1, I know.
BTW: The nasty accident of a tractor-trailer and mini-van that killed seven (including four young children) in central New York last evening happened not too far from here. I saw it made national news. We had that to be aware of at school today PLUS having, yesterday, a mother of four children in our school killed when her husband hit her with the truck. (Police aren't quite sure yet what exactly happened, aside from the fact that the parents were arguing and the mother opened the door of the moving truck to jump out, the truck swerved and hit her. The four kids saw this all happen.) I know two of those kids. So, it has been some kind of end of the week here in rather quiet and rural central New York.
