30 Stories in 30 Days

September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month. For the next 4 weeks, we will post stories written by thyroid cancer survivors, caregivers and friends for our 30 Stories in 30 Days campaign. We hope their perspectives and insight will help others along their journey.

At age 26, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. More than two years in remission, I just finished a week-long rock climbing trip in Estes Park, Colorado, and climbed up and rappelled down Lumpy Ridge. Cancer took my thyroid, but it did not take my will to live; it only made it stronger.
