Welcome to EmpowHer. As you mentioned I'm somewhat familiar with your story and know you have a lot to offer in terms of knowledge. I also find your spirit inspiring. Hattie, can you share with others your experience when you found out about your thyroid cancer and what measures you took to tackle it?
