What is cancer survivorship?

“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. It took her worldwide (via the internet), connecting 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.
