You beat cancer, you're all good now...right?

Many people see cancer survivors as - "you beat it, you're all good now". 

Yes, we did...however, for many of us we are also still battling.

Every niggle, every pain, every feeling of energy drain - can trigger thoughts of 'It's back', 'what if it's cancer again' etc etc.

- That pain in my arm.....must be a tumor.
- I have a headache.......what if it's cancer?
