My name is Laurie Ungar and I am a thyroid cancer survivor.

Encouragement means to me:

  • Hope
  • Happy
  • Life

“For the last two years I have been searching for a doctor that will listen to me and help me. I am more than my numbers and I have been in this tunnel of frustration for far too long. I look in the mirror and don’t even recognize myself anymore. I have gained weight and look so much older than I am from this long journey. I am tired of being tired.”

“These four words are a combination of what I wish my life to be.”

Thank you,
