Bringing Sexy Out of the Thyloset: Dorienne Plait
Today, Dear Thyroid™ is making a stop at the fabulous blog Too Much on Our Plait. I’m sure you’ve seen Dori around our community, but have you seen her blog? Dori is a survivor of papillary thyroid cancer and shares a blog with her mom, who is also a survivor of papillary thyroid cancer. Yes, you read that correctly—mom and daughter BOTH are survivors of thyroid cancer. But it doesn’t stop there—Dori has a sister, cousin, aunt, and brother-in-law who are also survivors of thyroid cancer! And all of them are participating in our celebration of survivorship post!!
Dorienne is passionate about raising awareness. She shares her story courageously and effortlessly and is truly making thyroid cancer sexy. And in case you are still thinking thyroid cancer is the “good” cancer, Dori will set things straight for you. Please read her awareness post and connect with her in comments!
In case you missed it, Dori’s acrostic poem for Invisible Illness Awareness Week was published earlier today—read it here.
Dear Thyroid is asking everyone to please sign the petition sponsored by Stevie JoEllie’s Cancer Care Fund to have thyroid cancer recognized as a public health issue by the Office of the Surgeon General. Please take thirty seconds out of your day and sign the petition.
