Story

Hi my name is Annette and I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer in 2016 right after my 41st birthday.  I felt a lump in my thyroid neck area and was consistently getting headaches due to high blood pressure.  I visited my doctor for a checkup and was diagnosed with cancer a week later.  Unfortunately 2 years before me a first cousin had already survived thyroid cancer as well and now my mother is going through thyroid cancer now and my aunt who is my cousins mother was just diagnosed 2weeks ago. I have been told its genetic.  We have all been blessed in early detection and are survivors.  My family and I have been leaning on each other even more now for support, love and understanding with our diagnoses.  United we stand. ❤
