I couldn't agree more with everything you've said. I've said these same things myself. My compromise statement is that I am a cancer-treatment survivor. Even then, you don't know if one of the side effects might get you down the road. I also have trouble with cancer free and remission. Cancer free seems more optimistic to me than remission but since starts with just one cell, I don't know if cancer free is an accurate statement. I would say that I have finished active treatments; however, since I am still on Tamoxifen, then I am still actively being treated. It's quite the dilemma.
