IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES

I Heart Guts is one of our favorite organizations. They’re near and dear to our hearts for so many reasons. To begin with, they make plushie organs and have a unique and inspiring approach to offering support and building community. You name the organ and IHG makes it – livers and lungs, bladders and brains, and thyroids and parathyroids!

CONTEST:  Acrostic poetry using the word, THYROID. In 7 words, describe what you’ve endured, how you have changed or how you imagine your life to be. Enter your poems in comments on this post. The contest will close at midnight/PST November 12, 2012. On November 13, 2012, we will post the top 3 entries. The entry with the most votes will be announced on November 19, 2012.

WINNER: The winner will receive a thyroid plushie toy delivered to their address. We will connect you with the great folks at I Heart Guts and you will provide them with your “Best” mailing address, so they can send you your thyroid!

When does the contest begin? NOW. Right now!

Enter your Thyroid Acrostic Poem. Be sure to share this with fellow community members.

Good luck!

    The truth is thyroid you tested me with

    Hospitals, surgeries, medication and

    You may have won the battle but I WON the war and on my

    Roughest days I find strength to live with

    Optimism that I will be able to help others that

    Inspire me with their inspiration to live and

    Defeat THYROID CANCER!

  12. Shelley says:

    Tired, jaded, wasted body
    Hemoglobin drop, sanguine fluid gone
    Yo-yo emotions, crotchety.. not due to age!
    Rough, brambly hair.. brittle nails
    Oversized, bulky, butterball, I have known it all
    Incomplete, insufficient, deficient iodine.. making me
    sleepless (not in Seattle)
    Depressed, abject, blues, dispirited.. emotions which have become cohorts

  13. Sam says:

    Trembling hands fan
    Hellfire flashes as I
    Yawn, is it nap time?
    Rage comes and goes, fleeting
    Obscure thoughts I can’t remember
    Dishes crowd the sink for another day.

  14. Lindsay says:

    This is about my journey having Hashimoto’s, Hypothyroidism, a cancer scare, and now surgery.

    Lifeless.
    Stayed Hopeful.
    And Now I’m Free.

  15. Andrea says:

    This about learning that I had Graves’ disease two months after I gave birth to my son at 23

    Confused, upset and scared
    Felt alone and as if no one cared
    Too young and in denial
    I just had a baby, why couldn’t this of waited for a while
    No friends, siblings or lover could understand
    They google and tell me what I should “withstand”
    I fight myself on the daily
    With my mind, with my health, all while holding my baby
    I will fight, I will be strong
    Because I deserve to live, I deserve to belong

  16. Christine says:

    T oday a year ago
    H e called
    Y ou have cancer
    R ace for your life
    O verwhelmed with labs, biopsies, scans, surgery, radiation and medication
    I ncredible caregivers
    D etermined to give back – reminded of the gift of today

  17. Mrs. Sanchez says:
