Craft item from our 9 year old. I didn’t suggest this or make him do it. He picked it out, painted it, and wrote out the words (he just asked for help spelling). The term “survivor” is used a lot for people who beat cancer. But imagine that you are 8 or 9, and this is your MOM dealing with cancer. Imagine hearing the word “survivor” & thinking…. the opposite of survive is death. Whoa. I bet not many people think of it that way. It makes the word survivor seem even scarier. I’m not sure I can think of an alternate name though. Cancer beater or cancer kicker doesn’t have the same ring to it. I asked the boys if they could come up with a different name, but they didn’t have one. I think “mom” is my favorite name anyway.
