My precious little angel was diagnosed with cancer of the thyroid after complaining of soar throat at the tender age of 7 and shook my world, she had to undergo an emergency operation in the USA to remove it, but had spread to her chest, went through a series of chemotherapy and now she on thyroid medication for the rest of her life, she turned 18 last Dec. I still cry sometimes at night when I think about it and don't know how I'm gonna get over it, I don't let her see me but the mere thought of of it and the waterworks opens up.
I want to know why and how can someone that young get or develop thyroid cancer and is this normal? How is it going to affect her later in life? Can and will she be able to live a normal life?
