I am a lucky person. Very. Rarely a week goes by that you don’t hear about someone being diagnosed with cancer and about others’ who don’t survive. But, I was. And, I did. That makes me a very lucky person and I don’t take being a survivor for granted. Ever.
Now I know I had the “good cancer” – thyroid. But, let me tell you there is no good cancer. No sentence that has cancer as one of the words will ever be “good”. (Correction: The only acceptation would be if the sentence read: Scientists have a 100% cure for ALL cancers.)
As many of you know, I am a consummate educator. That means I like to share life lessons. Let me tell you what I have learned six years and seven months after my 7-plus hour surgery for papillary thyroid cancer.
