(Written by, Robs, Thyroid Cancer Survivor)
We are all here today to pay our respects to a most formidable foe. An individual who has penetrated every aspect of my life. It has been both my burden, and my constant companion. It is the proximate cause for a great deal of pain and suffering, but it has shaped my life and personality in ways that nothing else could have ever done.
I refer of course to my thyroid cancer.
It is hard to believe that it was just five years ago, on February 16, 2005, that it made its presence known, and we started our journey through doctors and insurance. In its wake, it claimed my thyroid and numerous lymph nodes, some tear ducts, a vocal cord, and more blood samples than humanly imaginable. It is a sigh of relief to know this reign of terror against my body has subsided, and I can move on with my life.
My dear thyca, I hope that as you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you know you are the only evil, and you shall not be missed.
May you be gone, now, and forever.
