Getting stronger everyday. Life is a like a marathon especially when healing. Give yourself grace and be good to yourself....epecially during the holiday season. #tooblessedtobestressed #thycasurvivor #thyca #thycasurvivor #TruthaboutTC #checkyourneck #butterflies #hope #wingsofhope #inspiredaily #instalove #christmas #lifeisamarathonnotasprint
Never ever let someone tell you maybe your not built for something..... Judgement often tells more about the other person than the judged. I was told by one of my doctors that maybe I wasn't built for running because I complained of sacroiliac nerve pain that was actually from a hormonal medication overdose. When my meds were reduced, the pain went away. The facts are that the amount of hormone therapy thyroid cancer survivors have to endure can lead to osteoporosis. It's a known side effect. Be your own advocate because no one will if you don't. Listen to YOUR body and YOU are the expert of YOU. No one tells me I am not a runner. Not even ME. #TruthaboutTC #thycasurvivor #thyca #nevergiveup #neverstopfighting #womenofimpact #makeadifference #speakup #speakyourtruth #heartsonfire #survivor

One year, 12months, 365 days... November 12, 2017. 🎗 🦋 A few days before, I had a biopsy on a nodule that my wonderful PCP had found because I was feeling “off”. I went in thinking I was vitamin deficient or had hypothyroid (because I had as a teenager but grown out of it). The Radiologist who did my fine needle aspiration was so certain that my nodule was benign he said “just look online in a couple of days and you’ll look for the word benign.” 🎗 🦋 Those were NOT the words I read on a quiet Sunday evening sitting at home across from my husband. I’ll never forget this day a year ago. The instant knot in my stomach, lump in my throat feeling... the tears that flowed and flowed... but most importantly the support that instantly arrived and still to this day has my back. And two weeks later, I was in the OR having half of my thyroid removed. When that wasn’t enough, two weeks later (just two weeks before Christmas!) I was back having the other half of my thyroid removed and 10 lymph nodes! 🎗 🦋 November 12, 2017 will always be a day that signifies a major change in my life! Thyroid cancer taught me so much. I was always terrified that I’d get cancer. Well I did. And I punched it right in the face 👊🏻 I am a better person after going through it. I am stronger 💪🏻 More humble 🙏🏻 More grateful 😇 and I am excited for the future 😀🧁I am reminded every day of this time in my life by a little green pill I take each morning. I still suffer issues dealing with too much or too little medication. But I am blessed, and I am grateful for my health. It could be worse, but it is not, and I celebrate 🎉 that every single day! 💚💗💜 #strongerthanTC #fineneedleaspiration #biopsy #nodule #thyroid #thyroidcancer #papillarythyroidcarcinoma #butterflygland #thyca #truthaboutTC #thyroidectomy #lymphnodes #lymphectomy #findingtendermercies #faith #hope #love #mercy #thyroidwarrior #thyroidawareness #thyroidcancersurvivor

Check Ya Neck! 👐🏻 This ultrasound made me nervous for some reason. But I’ve been feeling really good! 🦋 My endocrinologist switched my medication today. Instead of 125mcg 5 days a week, I’ll now take 8mcg 7 days a week- which actually computes out to the same thing! #checkyourneck #thyroid #thyroidectomy #neckultrasound #thyca #thycawarrior #thyroidcancer #thyroidcancersurvivor #truthaboutTC #findingtendermercies #lifewithoutathyroid
Today was my 6 month post cancer check up! ✅ Everything looked good in my labs except my T3 🤔🤔🤔 He’s not sure why it’s still 0.01 🤷🏻‍♀️ I don’t know why either... but I’ve been feeling fine! So he ordered some blood work and I have an ultrasound tomorrow on my neck! He didn’t feel anything concerning when he checked my neck. So I’m feeling positive 👍🏻 #tsh #T3 #thyroid #thyroidhealth #thyroidcancersurvivor #thyca #truthaboutTC #6monthscancerfree

In October 2006, our dad was diagnosed with the very rare and aggressive Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer and given 2-4 weeks to live. After aggressive chemo & radiation (& etc), he beat the odds and remains clear of ATC. #truthabouttc @thycainc In July 2018, during a “routine” scan, he was diagnosed with a rare Esophageal Cancer, believed to have been brought on by the high-dose radiation he had to beat the ATC so many years ago. Admittedly, my initial thought was... “WTF. This can’t be real life.” 🖕💔😰🤦🏻‍♀️ But this is real life. The perspective is not lost on me that we’ve had an incredible 12 years we weren’t supposed to have.... For that, I am grateful. Having perspective, however, does not make it easier. It’s put to test those lessons my parents taught us about love, faith, optimism, drive, passion, compassion, trust, curiosity, determination, never giving up, honesty, believing you can, being kind, working smart, and that details matter. Perspective does not make “only 12 years” okay. Perspective does help you prioritize. Cancer laughs in the face of control freaks like me who just want to “fix” it — but we’ve persisted. And all those life lessons... well, turns out they’re true. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤔❤️💪🙏 So here we are - October 2018, he just completed yet another aggressive round of chemo & RE-radiation (now a combined total of *61* BRUTAL radiations to the neck area.... 66Gy and 50.4Gy — an insane & unprecedented amount). And he ended that horrific treatment today with a big smile even though I know it was so hard and through fear, optimism, and literal *charred pain. He walked out & asked if I was ready for my conference call (I was). 🤓👍 😍 He rang the bell - for what we hope and pray is the final bell our family ever has to ring against cancer. And we are forever grateful for the love and support we’ve experienced from so many of you! Still a long road ahead. But today we rang the bell of hope at @mayoclinic and said, “Not today, cancer!” And it felt pretty damn great. ❤️ #fcancer #mustardseed #beatcancer #cancersucks #byefelicia #byecancer #ibelieveinmiracles #TMIpost 🤣🤗 👉 swipe

Here is my #truthaboutTC - it’s not, nor has it ever been “the easy Cancer.” ⁣ ⁣ As they squeeze out the 12th tube of blood this morning, 3 years post-TT, I’m still not level, I fake feeling “well” on a daily basis, and I still fight for my health every single day. ⁣ ⁣ But you know what? I still firmly believe that Cancer picked the wrong chick! ⁣ ⁣ I’ve been through SO much in my 33 years on earth- this isn’t going to stop me! ⁣ ⁣ #thyca #talkthyroid #thycawarrior

4 years ago today, I got the called that changed my life forever. To be honest I didn’t really hear the rest of what she was saying after the words you have cancer left her lips. I just went numb right away. As a young 25 year old mother of 3 the first thing I thought of after I hung up the phone was how was there was so much I still had left to do with my life. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Cancer is ruthless. Cancer just simply sucks! And It will unfortunately be apart of my life forever. Some say thyroid cancer is the good cancer to have because of survival rate but in my opinion it’s one of the worst. The struggle to survive after treatments and surgeries is the hard part. Living without a major organ. The organ that regulates all of the other organs in your body to function and work properly. Taking medications every day for the rest of your life to feel just an ounce of normalcy. I am still after 4 years struggling to maintain a good TSH level. I have more off days then I have good days, & im in pain more than often not. When you ask how I’m doing I’m usually lying. I don’t usually like to share stuff like this because I don’t want pity and I don’t like to complain but in the honor of thyroid cancer awareness month, the month that I was diagnosed with cancer, I feel like it’s important to share my story. 🦋💜💗💙🦋 #ThyroidCancerAwarenessMonth #ThyroidCancerIsNotTheGoodCancer #ThereIsNoGoodCancer #Thyca #CancerSucks #ThyroidCancer #3yearsCancerFree #CancerSurvivor #TruthAboutTC #SheLetHerButterlyGoSoSheCouldLive

This month makes it 13 years since I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and though in remission I still battle the long term effects on a daily basis. #TruthAboutTC #Survivor #NoSuchThingAsGoodCancer
People often comment that something seems to always be wrong with me or they ask why I always seem tired, uncomfortable or sick. When my thyroid was removed almost 6 months ago, it changed so much about how my body works. This little gland was already not functioning properly because I unknowingly had Hashimoto's (an autoimmune disorder where your body basically attacks your thyroid). After it was removed, I was prescribed a high dose of T4 (the hormone your thyroid produces) to suppress my Thyroid Stimulating Hormone from being released as part of my cancer treatment. This has caused heart palpitations, muscle aches, anxiety, shortness of breath, and insomnia. I will never be the same. My body will never work the same. I'm trying to focus on the positive and I'm grateful I have one of the most treatable forms of cancer, but it also seems to be the most misunderstood. I've been very open about my experience to spread awareness. I often have people message me and say they found my profile after being diagnosed and it has helped them through their journey. Be good to your thyroid. Eat foods rich in iodine, but most importantly check your neck! If my doctor hadn't noticed the swelling at the base of my neck, who knows how long I would have gone before being treated. My cancerous nodule had already spread to my lymph nodes. I just hope I can help others get the treatment they need before it's too late. . . . #checkyourneck #thyroidcancer #thyroid #thyroidcancerawarenessmonth #hashimotos #thyca #thycawarrior #thyroidectomy #stupidcancer #cancersurvivor #truthabouttc

Some off my scars are what are visibly left behind since the beginning 13'ish years ago. Scars are what people see or remember. My brain and my body remember so much more. Memories (good and bad), hardships, perseverance, decisions, determination, emotions, thoughts, love, denial, acceptance, crying, laughing, joking and anger. This has formed me into who I am. I am not cancer, I am not in remission, I am not sickly looking and I am not perfect. I am who I am. I'm a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a cosmetologist, a fighter, a sister, a lover, a believer, a hardass, a jokester, a pitbull adorer, a crier and I could go on for so many more things. Cancer shouldn't defy me as sick or dying, it should defy me as a fighter, along with anyone else with an illness. We just have a few extra bumps along the way in our life that makes us who we are and who we are inspiring to be. This is isn't just for myself, but for others with illness(es) not always seen by the eye because you don't have to look sick to have something unhealthy going on inside body. My 13 year cancerversary passed in August. It came, it went and yet I still have cancer. Cancer has become my best friend because it doesn't leave, it spreads and it let's me help others. For all of my friends who I know who are going through or have bumps going on in your life, stay fighting always because in the end it's your life and not your illnesses life🎗 #cancer #cancersucks #stupidcancer #fuckcancer #thyca #fight #stillgoing #living #burnt #getbusyliving #standuptocancer #mystory #307 #truthaboutTC #fighter #metastic #wearesurvivors #youngadult #cancerawareness #su2c
❓ 🤔 Do you know what your thyroid controls in your body? The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, mood, bone maintenance and more! That’s why it’s so important to make sure your thyroid is working properly. #TruthAboutTC #SeptemberisThyroidCancerAwarenessMonth #IamASurvivor #FightLikeAGirl #ButterflyGland #Thyroid #Warrior #CheckYourNeck #Hormones #ThyroidDisorders #ThyroidCancer #Hypo #Hyper #CancerSucks #MyStory

Sometimes it can be difficult to see the sunshine, through whatever life throws our way. Keep looking for it though. With my health being a bit off the last week or so, and thyroid med levels being at another low, I can definitely relate..... but keep pushing on. It’s so worth it. These challenging times make us stronger in the end.... and help us to see the sunshine for all it’s real beauty. I’m grateful for the lows - because they let me really appreciate the highs, and all those little things in between. - - - #inspiration #survive #thrive #lookupandlive #thycaworries #keeppushing #lowthyroidlevels #lifewithoutathyroid #truthabouttc #lifeisforliving #iwillalwaysgetbackup
The ugly truth about being a thyca survivor! There are days when I want to cry at the number of pills it takes to just 'function normally' every day. The truth is, there is no constant 'normal' when you live without your thyroid. You just have to take a breath, be grateful that these medications and supplements exist at all, so that you can live with that 'new normal' the Dr's tell you about. I am SO VERY GRATEFUL to live in a country where my medication is accessible and affordable. Without thyroid medication I would slip quietly into a coma and then, who knows? This life I have is a daily miracle, as is any life, and if I have to take these things for each and every day of the rest of it, I WILL. Theses miracle drugs/supps allow me to keep kicking cancer's butt and show it that I am not only a FIGHTER …. but a LIFE LIVER!!! Every day, every hour, every minute, every second …. is a BLESSING… so MAKE IT COUNT!!! - - - #thycawarrior #warrior #liveroflife #ilovelife #livewithwhatyouaregiven #thislifeisbeautifulifyouletitin #makeitcount #thetruthabouttc #thyroidcancer #thyroidcancersurvivor #truthabouttc
First race since beating cancer 👊🏻 I trained, and prepped myself for this 5k. 🏃🏻‍♀️While I ran it I thought to myself “Cancer is not an excuse for me”. Not because I’m cancer free, but because I’m never giving up on myself. I beat my goal of 35 minutes by about 3 minutes! 🤸🏻‍♀️🎉 I am happy with that! My boys asked me if I won the race.

Sobre as cores do lacinho do câncer de tireoide... As 3 cores foram selecionadas por sobrevivente de câncer de tireóide Cherie LC, voluntário para a organização sem fins lucrativos ThyCa: Associação dos sobreviventes do câncer de tireóide. O azul/roxo profundo representa o centro de energia da garganta, rosa representa as influências espirituais na cura e verde-azulado é uma cor de cura. A combinação de 3 cores também enfatiza a variedade de situações com câncer de tireóide, porque existem diferentes tipos de câncer de tireóide e isso afeta as pessoas em todas as faixas etárias. “Namore a vida !

Lengthy post. No lifting posts. No badass body anymore. Nothing. I've been empty. My body has been basically shutting down on me. I've suffered through migraines for over 10 years and have never let it stop me. I have had hip surgery, my thyroid removed, gall bladder taken (list goes on) , too many surgeries. I was never scared of anything about my health until one day I dropped a plate & didn't realize I had dropped it till it hit my foot, I thought it was still in my hand. My fingers were completely numb. I've been going on for way too long with electricity shooting down my arms/fingers into my head and temple. I've lost more vision in my left eye that is seeming to stay permanently rather than just when I have a migraine. The pain and the frustration had become too much. I saw a new neurologist on April and 2 days after my 28th birthday in June, I hopefully will get some answers. Lifting is my love but scary when I can't feel my arm or fingers enough to tie my own shoes. I have hope that I'll get back to where I was and even better than before. Until then my mental health is my first priority and figuring out the steps I need to take to get better. #health #update #sick #sad #tired #chronicpain #thyroiddisease #thyroidectomy #migrainesufferer #thyroid #truthabouttc #thyroidcancerawareness #youwillknowmyname #earningmybody #livesore #iliveforthis #buildingmylegacy #likeagirl #tinyviking #legionofboom
Hey 👋🏻 I feel like I have been MIA for a while! Thing have been good. Really good! I’ve been baking 👩🏻‍🍳(it’s kinda my thing @emscakedesign ), vacationing ☀️, and memory making 📸 I have felt like I’ve needed to catch up from the last 5 months of craziness! - My thyroid journey 🦋 is still so real. On March 28th I had an ultrasound of my neck and some blood work done as post treatment follow-up. About a week later my #endocrinologist called me with the results. The first phone call was to say that my #tsh levels were too high. So instead of taking my #levothyroxine 6 days a week, only take it 5 days a week. The second phone call was really GOOD. So good that I’ve been on cloud nine! They said that my #thyroglobulin level is non-existent. Which is exactly what we want! The neck ultrasound showed no recurring nodules or evidence of recurrence. What they said next was music 🎶 to my ears “Your chance of recurrence is slim to none.” Yeah, it can still happen. Anything can happen, but we can’t live in fear of the future. So I’ve been replaying those words over and over again in my head. It has really helped me move on. Along with some life coaching I’ve been doing, things have been looking up ⬆️ It feels really good! - For those who feel like things might not ever look up or seem better— keep hope! Your time will come. Everyone has their time and season. And we push forward with positivity in the future! Keep hope for tomorrow! #thyca #thyroidcancer #thyroidcancersurvivor #thyroidcancerawareness #thyroid #thyroidectomy #thyroidwarrior #checkyourneck #papillarythyroidcancer #truthaboutTC #strongerthanTC #findingtendermercies #joyinthejourney #faithineveryfootstep #hope
Will posted on FB so I figured I should get it out. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with hashimotos/hypothyroidism. After I had Stevie they biopsied the 2.5cm nodule growing in my thyroid. That came back negative but last winter I had several sore throats and difficulty swallowing. In July we ultra-sounded it again and found it had grown over 4cm. In early December I had a total thyroidectomy. The Dr said the nodule looked like a ping pong ball. No one was concerned it was cancer since it was negative before and there were other nodules present. Pathology sent it out for a second opinion...not good. It came back just before Christmas as “encapsulated hurtle cell carcinoma with minor vascular invasion” 😳 what?!? This variant of thyroid cancer is rare and tends be more aggressive. (Also cannot be detected through needle biopsy) I did some blood work and another ultrasound to reveal “suspicious lymph nodes” had those biopsied and finally after a lot of waiting received the treatment plan of radioactive iodine. Which requires me to be isolated from the kids for a week. The oncology team sees no indication that it has spread at this time. So after this treatment, We’ll follow up with the same tests in 6 months to see if I’m clear or if it’s still there. My heart and soul have been filled with the outpouring of LOVE and SUPPORT 💗 I’ve felt the blessings of your prayers and sacrifice for me. Having faith through trials is what it’s about and I know that Heavenly Father has blessed me through all of you. I’m truly grateful for you all. I didn’t know what a thyroid was until my doctor asked if I had ever had it checked 4 years ago. I thought I just needed some anti-anxiety meds, I thought I was fatigued from being stressed all time. I couldn’t sleep and I was freaking out over the littlest things with the kiddos. the thyroid controls so many things in our bodies, if you feel off don’t hesitate to get it checked out. #thyriodcancer #hurtlecellcarcinoma #cancersucks #truthabouttc
