What does cancer survivorship mean?( 0:35:1)       
Episode Information
“Survivorship can be tricky for some people; it comes with a lot of baggage, I don't love using the word survivor, but I'm not sure how else to describe where I am post-treatment.” Last year, Helen went on a quest to find other younger cancer survivors to try and define what cancer survivorship means. She connected with people in Australia, the UK, America, and Aotearoa. This episode is a montage of previous C Word guests talking about what cancer survivorship means to them.
