Something positive from cancer

So, someone came to see me today. Cancer has recurred. Said that it was good (then amended the statement) that I had cancer, because I understood. So often, the person said, people say "don't worry, everything will be OK. But we know it may not be."

Now, I have never been a person who has said "don't worry" or "you shouldn't feel that way", but having had cancer assured this person that I wouldn't say the wrong things.

We always worry. It might come back.
