Hope definitely is it, when I first was diagnosed with the thyroid cancer I met this elderly lady at the hospital who told me “ stay positive 🤗👍, stay strong 💪 and always know the lord 🙏 is beside you “ I have lived by that and feel it’s mostly what keeps the monster away!!

Hi I’m not one of the mentors but I myself have been through three different cancers. The best thing my husband did for me was to be himself, be there for me and go to all my surgeries, appointments, scans with me because there is such a thing as scan-anxiety (you go anxious prior to and while waiting for the results) , scared they will find more especially when you’ve had more than one cancer. Don’t push him to talk about things, let him at his pace. I had a very hard time talking to my husband and closest people to me at first, I also lost my mother, father, brother, uncle and aunt to the monster and have a cousin who has been fighting it since childhood. We’re a big pretty close family my cousin and I are really close and do talk about all this stuff, more than we talk to our spouses about. I do talk to my husband but it a thing like some things in the military if you’re not there and it’s not happening to you, one doesn’t truly know. And it’s not to take away the care or love one gives their parters (my husband is the best in the world and I can tell you are too) it’s just talking to that person who has been there helps reassure you that you can win the battle and beat the monster, because they are proof. My husband also got online researched everything, so when we went to the drs if I missed something he had my back, he looked up all my meds…because I’m allergic to a few things, he is very active in my health issues. I hope this helps you, have a very Merry Christmas

I have to actually say I for one have been taken care of pretty good by the VA…I know all the horror stories but so far pretty good and I Retired from the military in 1998 started going to the Tampa,Florida VA in about 2001, for my lymphedema associated with the removal of the lymph nodes they are sending me to their occupational therapist in the poly trauma unit, she’s great. I do agree that some who should be getting disability benefits don’t and that’s one of the biggest complaints veterans have against the VA.

The VA said they tested and said they were not related…..I am finished treatment, the VA is following me on a 3 month bloodwork and oncologist schedule, 6 month liver ultrasound and lung ct, back to 1 year diagnostic mammogram. Plus I have a surgeon at Moffit who has ordered some other test and the dna stuff

Hi. Colleen, yes the thyroid was first they did a complete removal w/ radiation pill. Yes the lung and breast were both primary all started in 2012. I am retired from the military and was on the military rodeo team but these last 9 years have really been a wild ride. I know keeping a sense of humor and staying positive along with the lord have kept me beating this monster.

Why does it seem once you get one of these cancers thyroid cancer, lung cancer or breast cancer you all 3? I have had all 3 it started with the thyroid then the lung and next breast. The online lung cancer support group I follow it seems like a large amount of them have also had all three. But yet most drs say it’s not related and my drs don’t have an answer, I’m very curious
