Cancer Survivors Day

Good gravy, what a busy day. Here it is 8:00 at night and I haven't wished everyone a Happy National Cancer Survivors Day!

The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation makes it pretty clear what they mean by "Survivor": "anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life." No arbitrary 5 year milestones, or clear scans, or anything else. You heard The Words, even once, and you're in The Survivors Club.

The Foundation's logo kind of looks like a figure skater. I'm going to pretend it's Katarina Witt, two-time Olympic gold medalist for East Germany. She's not a cancer survivor, as far as I know, but she was fun for a teenage boy to watch.

Anyway, Happy Day to all you cancer survivors. Look forward to tomorrow, and then enjoy it while you have it.
