To give a little insight about myself, I want to begin with how my cancer changed my world view. I have a stronger grasp on my spirituality, positivity, and gratitude for what remains to be the rest of my life. I learned that every day is a missed opportunity if I do not live happily or seize the moment while I am alive. My cancer experience is a story I can and do speak openly about. I strive to share my story with everyone in hopes to bring light to another who may similarly be struggling with their self-image and confidence as I was.
The story begins from the day my doctor diagnosed me with thyroid cancer in June of 2014. Not only was I shocked and worried about my health, but I was also concerned about the scar I would have on my neck after the fateful surgery. With the procedure thankfully completed, I was given a cream meant to be applied to my neck every day until the scar disappeared. I applied the cream and only after a few days it had started to fade from my skin. For some reason, the idea of no longer having a scar did not make me happy. I began to think of my scar as a mark that defined my strength and victorious battle with cancer. Every morning that I woke up and saw my scar in the mirror, I was mentally reminded of how lucky and thankful I was to be standing there. One night with a group of friends at a party, I spoke about my experience with cancer and the wholesome shift in body image regarding the scar on my neck. After 8 months since the party, I ran into a woman I met there who had been coincidentally looking for me. She informed me of the momentous impact I had on her life. Before she heard my story at the party, she emotionally suffered from her scar and was always finding a way to cover it with either make up, the collar of her blouse, or a scarf. But, after hearing my story, her view transformed and the scar no longer bothered her. She accepted it as a part of who she was and a reminder of the obstacles she overcame. Her story encouraged me to continue sharing my story, which is why I decided to do so on this page. If I had the power to change one person’s view at a small party, I know I can reach across distances to hopefully influence many others.
