Cancer survivor

A cancer survivor is an individual with cancer of any type, current or past, who is still living.

Many cancer survivors describe the process of living with and beating cancer as a life-changing experience.[citation needed] It is not uncommon for this experience to bring about a personal epiphany, which the person uses as motivation to meet goals of great personal importance, such as climbing a mountain or reconciling with an estranged family member.
