An Open Letter to Thyroid Patients

BCBC member, Louise Sattler is about to “celebrate” her third anniversary of having Stage 3 Thyroid cancer removed from her neck and her life! Here is an honest and humorous blog to help others who may be undergoing the same path. This was originally written for her blog WHERE LEARNING MEETS LAUGHTER and we reprint here due to the importance of helping other thyroid cancer patients.

Dear New Thyroid Cancer Patient,

I am writing this letter nearly three years to the date of my thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer. I was so lucky to be surrounded by great docs at Johns Hopkins Hospital and many others.
