    Decision Point

    My sister was having problems related to her thyroid. She could either go through radiation to kill the thyroid or she could have it taken out. She decided to have it taken out and this is the point where they discovered she had cancer on her thyroid.

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My sister had her thyroid removed and it was not until after this procedure that she discovered she had cancer. Had she not had the issues with her thyroid and had it removed, who knows how long it would have been before it was discovered.

    Remission

    Celebration

    Currently my sister is cancer free but has to go back every six months for tests and it can come back anytime. This is a celebration as she has not had to endure a long bout with cancer at this time, but at the same time the worry is always in the back of her (and my) head.
