Happy National Cancer Survivors Day

Five years ago I spit cancer in the face.
Many of us can make similar claims, and today is the day we can all take a bow.
In a few hours, I'll be doing standup comedy that traces my diagnosis, treatment and recovery from cancer.
I appreciate the encouragement PF readers have given me, so thank you all.
After writing 15 legal pad pages of shtick, I have distilled it down to 10 headlines, written on a single 5x7 page. I'm loose, relaxed and rrrready to rrrrumble.
If you have survived cancer or know someone who has, make a comment below and tell those who may be facing it something encouraging.
Cancer's no longer the death sentence it once was, and today we can all be thankful for that.
Let the celebrations begin!
