After our cancer treatment concludes, every one of us wants so desperately to believe that our bodies are rid of our cancer forever, and that our fight is over. We want to believe that we’ll be able to put what we’ve been through behind us, and that our lives will return to normal, even if it means a new normal. That’s exactly what I believed in July of 2011 after a five-month fight against testicular cancer, but I was in for a rude awakening. My body was free from cancer, but my life wasn’t. There was so much I’d yet to experience, and so many important lessons that I’d learn along the way.
