I'm a 42 year old, single father of a child with developmental disabilities. I've been a cyclist for most of my life as well as recreational triathlete and athlete. My hobbies include photography, travel (when I can) as well as volunteering for various community organizations like Special Olympics. My education includes a bachelor's degree from Indiana University (born and raised in Fort Wayne) as well as a master's degree from Florida State University. My father recently passed away from renal cell carcinoma and my oldest sister has had thyroid cancer as well. Professionally, my background is in marketing and have started and run a non-profit doing bike trips for kids with disabilities and their families.
General Cancer Type: Thyroid
Specific Cancer Type: Papillary
I had a thyroidectomy last October followed by radioactive iodine treatment. Since the cancer mestaticized to the lymph nodes in my neck, my treatment consists of bi-annual ultrasounds of my neck. For my one year check up, I need to do a low iodine diet in combination with thyrogen and radioactive iodine.
