The tollgate

The difference between people who have had cancer and people who haven’t is simple. The people who have never had cancer cruise life’s highway, but cancer people in remission always have a tollgate they have to go through every six months or a year. And the only token we have is the angry determination of hope.

But even though the ones cruising life’s highway bounce along, their road ends at a tollgate, and the sooner they realize it, the more they’ll enjoy the drive. But it has to be in your heart not your heart. You have to live off campus. That’s why I wrote about Today Cancer Tomorrow The World, which describes my second battle with testicular cancer.
