Hi, I recently celebrated my 9th year in remission post treatment from stage 2b double primary ovarian & uterine ca, but I still could very much relate to that feeling of “survivor’s guilt”.  While I’ve lost 3 of my chemo classmates/close friends (and might be losing another soon as she struggles through a recurrence & spread), I’m here and alive.  I’m deeply sorry for others, but at the same time, I’m also filled with gratitude.  For me, it was a very humbling journey and it would be a waste if I don’t make the most of my “bonus round” in this borrowed life.  I realised that my purpose is not just to live for oneself, but more for others ~ serving in any way I can and encouraging hope are making my new life more meaningful.
