Aptly named title, and once I applied it to the content of the story, the whole meaning of your story became quite clear.
You approach the topic of "Cancer" from the cancer's perspective, and what other disease works so hard to corrupt the rest of the whole system? Indeed, it is a battle, and one very hard to win. In fact, the term "remission" gives a false hope of being cured, knowing that there's a danger lurking behind your very cellular structure, ready to betray you at any given time.
Interesting twist, SnF, and well written. I think the brevity of your story contributes to your ability to invoke the emotions you were trying to produce, condensing your thoughts into a brutal recognition of how relentless a horrible disease can be.

It's actually a little chilling to read it put that way, as we all know of someone who has suffered the ravages of cancer or lost someone to it's many forms.
Well written, thought provoking. S&F.
