Comments : Please pray for me. I am 31 year old married woman with 2 young children (6 & 4) and I have many health issues. I have several mental health problems, diabetes, I may have a problem with my kidney due to my diabetes (I am waiting to see a specialist) and on August 15th I am going for a thyroid biopsy because my endocrynologist thinks I may have thyroid cancer because a very large nodule was found during an ultrasound. I am very scared. I know that thyroid cancer is very treatable but that doesn't make me feel any better. The word cancer alone is enough to scare someone.

Take a deep breath, Laura. By now you have learned the results of the thyroid biopsy. Hopefully, the news was good, but if not, rest assured that you WILL get through this. You will do it one exam, one treatment, one procedure, one day at a time. The good news is, you will not be doing it alone. Your medical team will guide you through the process, of course, and your family and friends will support you. Your children will have the opportunity to learn a great deal about compassion, respect, love and mitzvot. Most of all, Hashem will be there. ("He won't lead you to it if He won't lead you through it.") I know all of this because I went through the same thing myself. That was 10 years ago. Hang in there, Laura. You'll be fine and will emerge from this adventure with an understanding of life unlike anything you've known up to this point in your 31 years.
