Julie joins me for this episode talking about her journey to diagnosis of PDTC (Poorly Differentiated Thyroid Cancer) around the time of COVID shutdown. She talks about how scared her and her husband felt when they first found out, all the questions they had, and how alone they felt because they didn't know anyone else with PDTC. Julie is now a facilitator for the PDTC support group through ThyCa and talks about the importance of finding support, advocating for yourself, and not reading articles beyond a couple years old. Julie talks about her own process of emotionally adjusting to living with a chronic disease.
