Hello, my name is Alyssa. I am currently 19 years old. I’m basically just your average college student. In September of 2016, I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. I’ve since had surgery to remove my thyroid, and am trying to live life as a “normal” 19 year old without a thyroid. Which is a lot harder than you may think it to be. This blog is my personal outlet for everything I may be experiencing and going through throughout my journey to try and find normalcy again.
