Theresa is conquering the challenges of living life with thyroid cancer. #ImNotAverage
- Condition: Thyroid Cancer
- Age: 57
- Location: Leesburg, VA
It was just a sore throat. The doctor thought different. Acquaintances said “but at least it's the GOOD cancer”. Is there really a “good” cancer? While thyroid cancer is not a death sentence, it is certainly life altering. Now one year later, after surgery and radioactive iodine therapy, I am in remission. I will be on two medicines for the remainder of my life. But, they replace a vital function I can no longer provide on my own, helping me return to normal allowing me to enjoy exploring the roads on my motorcycle.
