By bragging rights, I don’t just mean that I can brag that I survived cancer, I mean it makes it OK for me to brag about anything! Unabashed bragging would normally bring comments such as: “Geeze, isn’t she the conceited one!” Or, as we say in Newfoundland, “She’s some big in herself.” But with cancer, I can make my brags about anything, and people respond with, “Good for you, Florence!” and under their breath, “Poor thing has cancer, God love her.”

I think that is a big deal, and certainly worth bragging about. And furthermore, I am allowed to brag because I have cancer.
Tip: Having cancer makes bragging socially acceptable, so go ahead and toot your own horn.
