          I am 34 yrs old, married , mother of 4.I am currently going through a series of medical conditions but taking care the cancer is first! On May 4, 2010 , I had a total thyroidectomy at the suggestion of my dr who was suspicious something else was going on! So in trust i did and thank god i did! Found 2 mailgnant tumors, one on each lobe so it spread... It was pappilary carcinoma and follicular variant. I knew for so long something was wrong But i didn't fit the profile and the blood test were normal! It is now 2014 dx pancreatic cancer found on tail and need surgery. Too stressful and scary!
