This is the embroidery I did of my bad thyroid! I am 46 years old.  An event planner by trade, anthropologist by training and embroider by desire.  Have had thyroid cancer twice.   I did a 1,200 mile cycling tour down the Pacific coast– just me and my husband. It was empowering.  I have turned my life around:  left a shitty job, become largely vegan, exercise regularly, pursuing creative pursuits and being kinder to myself.
