As many people may already know, in September 2017 I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. Nothing prepares you for such a diagnosis, especially at the age of 21. I underwent surgery to remove my Thyroid as well as several of my lymph nodes as some were found to also be cancerous. I then had a round of RAI (a radioactive tablet) and was placed in isolation for 4 nights. Although my scan results showed it hadn’t spread to other parts of my body, I’m still unsure as to whether I need further treatment due to abnormal blood levels.
Myself and my wonderful sisters will be participating in Cancer Research’s 10,000 steps a day challenge in March. It’s so important to us to raise money to fund research to ensure we find a cure for cancer in the near future. If you would like to make a small donation to go to a life saving, amazing cause then please feel free to sponsor us.
10,000 steps a day is likely to be challenging, especially for me but I will complete this and push myself to do so!!
