Hi, I am 29, female, and newly diagnosed with a rare type of thyroid cancer. I've only known for a few days and so am still trying to come to terms with the impacts. My treatments won't be the same, at the moment only looking at surgery and radiation therapy, but perhaps I could offer an understanding ear? So far I am coping well with my diagnosis and would love to be able to offer support, as while I have had friends go through this previously I have also felt that I wasn't able to truly understand their situation, perhaps now I would be better prepared.
Pop me a pm if you think it is a good idea, and I certainly wouldn't be offended if she has decided this or I am not right for her :)
Wishing her all the best, and hoping you are also looking after yourself while you are taking such selfless action to try help her. I'm sure she appreciates the support you are giving her already.
