It's been 5 years since I was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer at the age of 24. Over 20 lymph nodes and my entire thyroid was removed from surgery in August of 2011. There are a lot of things I have learned along the way and in the process of going through that challenge. But today I just share a few things I learned from my experience and a little about my experience. I haven't really shared much about it before with people, but today was a milestone in this cancer journey. Making it 5 years with very little trace of cancer makes my chances of long term survival from this disease very high.
