imageAndrea - A Chance to Pay It Forward  I teach high school. Two weeks ago, teachers were told that one of our juniors was in surgery for thyroid cancer. After the collective gasp, I introduced the basic facts of thyroid cancer. This student had been in my class as a freshman as well as in a club I moderated. I wrote her a note (a real one, on paper, and it required a stamp), and explained why I was one of the few who knew exactly what her …More…

imageMerrill - Restorative Creativity  I had a restorative day in the studio today. Three paintings. Felt so good!  "When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of creation is complete inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight." Did I get this quote from one of you? I love it. I'm not traditionally religious--more an agnostic--but this quote expresses my kind of belief. Wishing you all the healing grace of creativity. …More…

imageScotthein - Blog update September 2014  As I await the latest scan results to see if my cancer has returned, I can only give thanks for this day. I must thank God for giving me this day and to all those that prayed to God on my behalf. I cherish this gift like no other I have received and I have been blessed to receive many other gifts in my life. Don’t misinterpret this to suggest that my life has been perfect. Indeed my life, like all …More…

imageJamie - August 31, 2014  Turns out that my September will be filled with Thyrogen shots, RAI, and isolation...with a side of low iodine diet thrown in.  Ellen Talia, we can share recipes!  :) I went in for my post op this week and it turns out that Berniece (left side tumor) grew a cancerous, 1 cm, little sister on the right side of my thyroid.  The little sister wasn't there during an ultrasound 4 months ago...so she came on relatively quickly (I guess?).         It also …More…

imageBetsy - 11days post op  I had a successful surgery. Praise the lord! I had been struggling to pull the trigger but was able to make that step once I decided I wanted to be cancer free while I still had a chance. God is amazing as a date opened for all 7 of my team on 8/20/14. I  agreed and it was the right choice. I did have a 3cm mass in my mesorectum attached to my left vaginal wall and tethered to my …More…

imageJana - Pain Free!  I am so excited to post that I have been pain free for over a week now!  I developed a fissure in February of this year and have been in constant pain for months.  I have been following the  regiment Daisy and others advised along with 3 different physicians - creams, stool softners, mylax, sitz baths and advil.  After 7 months of pain I had a BM that didn't hurt - then it didn't throb for hours afterwards - I …More…

imageDawn - Hospital Trip  I have had to wait a few days (a week) before posting because i am still a bit angry.  I ended up in the ICU for a few days and then on the onc floor for a few days.  all because a neupogen was forgotten.  i was fine one minute and in incredible pain the next.  woke up from a nap in a lot of pain and unable to take a deep breath.  i thought for sure my lung had …More…

imageEllen Talia - Cancer Scan September  On August 21, 2014, I marked the one year anniversary of surviving a massive neck surgery (total thyroidectomy and neck dissection with lymph node removal) to remove cancer that had metastasized locally from my neck.    I feel an infinite amount of love and gratitude to:    1. My family- For always cheering me on, nursing me back to health, navigating the cancer world with me, enduring the unknown and reminding me of the dazzling future that awaits. Thank you for sharing in my …More…
