Riley Castro, diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer while pregnant, got an adult-sized T-shirt for her daughter and takes her picture in it on every cancerversary.

Lindsay Ronnau Hildebrand, with stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, hiked a 14,000-foot peak with her friends.

  1. Whatever your milestones may be, when you reach one, be sure to acknowledge it. For instance, some people remember their cancerversary as the day they were told they were cancer-free or the day they finished treatment. Every cancerversary, they find a way to celebrate in a way that makes sense for them.
