What is a cancer misfit?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A cancer misfit is someone who was diagnosed with cancer as one person, but by the time they finish treatment they've become somebody else.

A cancer misfit is someone who feels broken, different or damaged as a consequence of going through cancer treatment.

The ones who don’t feel they fit into a pretty package anymore.

That don’t feel quite as normal as everybody else.

The ones that used to be a square peg that fit neatly in the square hole life.

Only now they’re a misfit, a little bit wonky, and don’t fit into that neat little square hole anymore.

The ones who feel less than who they were before cancer came along.

The ones who don’t think anyone else out there knows how it feels to survive cancer treatment only to struggle with life afterwards.

The ones with scars, visible on flesh, or inside on soul.

The ones that feel guilt and shame that they aren’t happier; because they aren’t dancing up and down for joy that they made it through treatment.

The ones that suffer alone because they don’t want to be a burden anymore than they already have.

The ones that worry all the time that the cancer may come back.

The ones that have terminal cancer who struggle to come to terms with the cards they’ve been dealt.

But you see there are millions of us.

We are everywhere.

We are a tribe without even knowing it.

We think we’re alone but nothing could be further from the truth.

We are the crazy cool cancer misfits.

And we are most definitely not alone.
