Certainly we all have in us a remote (or perhaps more immediate) fear of a cancer diagnosis. What if it wasn't just any cancer, but one that targets the very area on which your livelihood depends? Some of us might think we'd curl up and expire, but until you're faced with the reality of it, you never know how you'll take it. Lorna J. Brunelle resolved to dig down deep in her soul and find the fight to push through the hardship, and come out the other side a survivor. Her story raises awareness for what is, in fact, the fastest-growing cancer in the United States, with new cases cropping up at a rate of approximately four percent annually--faster than colon or breast cancer. In 2009, 35,000 new cases of thyroid cancer were diagnosed.
It's estimated that more than 350,000 people in the U.S. are living with thyroid cancer. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
