Doris Mensah

I was diagnosed in 2013 with Thyroid Cancer. When I found out I was scared, nervous and worried about what life would be like moving forward. Although I had support from family and friends I still felt alone. After going through surgery and treatment my overall health hasn’t been the same. I have to rely on medication to regulate my body for the rest of my life. If I go off the medication I can die. The frustrating part is the medication doesn’t help me 100% so I have to do my part and take care of my body so that I’m getting all the nutrients, care, and love my body needs to function properly. Although this is the new norm for me I am blessed that I’m alive. I’m grateful that I have been given the strength and ability to push through it all and live life irrespective of my situation. I want leave by saying this to someone who may be in a similar situation. You don’t have cancer. CANCER has YOU! You are an overcomer. Never allow your circumstances to have power over you. Once you allow that, you have already lost the battle.
