Numbers can be downright scary, especially for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. To them, numbers mean everything—tumor measurements, red and white blood cell counts, hormone levels and, most importantly, the magic number 5. Five years after cancer treatment, you’re finally considered in remission.

30 Cancer Number DoctorCancer, like so many things in life, is a numbers game, as cancer survivor Jon Filbert aptly put it…but thankfully, we’ve got cancer’s number.

We’ve all been affected by cancer in some way, shape or form. We all have a cancer number, whether it’s the number of months you’ve been in remission from lung cancer like Paul Miller…the number of feet you’ve climbed to raise awareness about blood and marrow donations like James Chippendale…or, like Aimee Bartis, the number of miles you’ve walked in cancer fundraisers in memory of your dad.

So what’s your number? Share your number and your story using the social media icons below to take the fear out of the numbers surrounding cancer.
