Hii I am Lisa - thyroid cancer free since 2008. Glad to be a part of this support group.
Hello everyone!! My name is Lisa and I am glad to be a part of the group! I was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2004 after having hypothyroidism for about 20 years. I immediately had a thyroidectomy and had my first of three radioactive iodine treatments over the next four years. I still could not get rid of a tiny pin size spot of cancer in my thyroid bed so my doctor suggested local beam radiation and I started a six week treatment plan. I completed that in 2008 and have been cancer free ever since! It’s been a long road of side effects and daily struggles but I wake up every day thankful to be alive and ready to take on the day! I am so grateful for my doctors that took care of me, my family support and my husband who rocked my journey with me!
