I hope for a speedy recovery!!

If you're going to get cancer, Thyroid Cancer is the one you're going to want to get. I say this because it response to the iodine in the chemo treatment the best, because of the way the thyroid absorbs iodine naturally. Unfortunately, the scar it leaves is absolutely huge. Most thyroid cancer doesn't need chemo treatment, surgery is enough, at the most radiation for a couple days is just needed.

How SAD for a woman, who has NEVER worked a day in her life, to manipulated the masses to throw their money at her so they can LOOK AT HER.....

I hope she recovers quickly. Thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable forms.

Why are so many people being diagnosed with thyroid cancer?
Could microwave radiation from cell phones be a contributing factor?
Wish her a speedy recovery!
