Sharing stories of hope. Spreading awareness.
It wasn’t until I was in surgery that it was discovered my thyroid cancer had invaded my trachea and larynx. My team of surgeons actually had to remove a ring of my trachea during the surgery‑something they never anticipated doing at the outset. I was worried that I would never be able to be as active as I was prior to surgery. In the years after I have gone on to run many half marathon and even ran the NYC marathon! This experience made me realize that I am so much stronger than I ever thought I could be and I need to appreciate every minute of my life!!
