Love this! Let's hear it for reaching a ripe old Cancer age - I'm 152:)


Do I get 40 points if I lost my hair twice?

Ginny Marie

Too funny! I'm quite young compared to the rest of you, though...I'll be 112 next week!


Love this! Both funny and TRUE!

I seem to be 186 years old, which is high enough thank you very much! ...... but while we're at it, maybe I owe it to my experience to be even older?!....

Riffing on ibcwarriorbabe's idea, shouldn't we rack up more points per diagnosis than just the 5 each? For example:

-3 separate cancers btwn ages 18-50 (not mets... 3 brand new ones) .... do I get 30 points?
-2 separate chemos (with different drug cocktails... and yes I remember them ALL!!), do I get 50 points?
-2 separate radiation courses... 40 points?
-5 separate cancer surgeries..... 50 points?

Wow! Just taking a few seconds to think of all of this quantitatively and with good humor boggles the mind!

How funny, I am the ripe old age of 120.

Shirley Corder

Hmm - when I set out to beat cancer, I admit I didn't expect to reach the age of 166! Fun quiz thanks.


Funny, I'm 158 and getting better with age :)


I am 199 years old...Interesting!


Love it! I'm 151, but who's counting? I'm loud and I'm proud to still be around. Thanks for all that you do, and for your sense of humor.

Each month hundreds of thousands of readers (and viewers, we also offer video) come to Opposing Views to learn about and discuss important issues.

In an effort to build a significant health and cancer section, we're reaching out to experts on the subject, and I thought Awesome Cancer Survivor would make a strong addition. If you're interested and have the time, we'd like you to become an Opposing Views expert.
