Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine cancer. It is a cancerous tumour or growth located within the thyroid gland. This can often lead to various symptoms of thyroid disease and tenderness/swelling.
With September being Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month, I thought sharing a personal story would be a great opportunity to raise awareness about thyroid cancer and Jenna’s story does a very good job of this. She experienced thyroid cancer at the very young age of just thirteen-years-old.
Offering the ability to win something is my way of saying thank you for all of your support over the last three years. Without it, I wouldn’t have written this book.
What Do You Win?
I’m giving away two copies of my new book “You, Me and Hypothyroidism: When Someone You Love Has Hypothyroidism”. One copy to a winner on Facebook and one to a winner on Instagram.
Included in this book written for those who know someone with hypothyroidism:
Easy to understand information on what hypothyroidism is and how it affects your spouse, friend or family member.
Ways in which you can best support the person you know with hypothyroidism to get them back to good health.
Information and practical advice on fertility issues, mental health, changes in sex drive, managing social events, dietary changes, housework and more.
Written by a thyroid patient and her husband to deliver both sides of the experience.
What Do You Need To Do To Enter?
Head on over to my Facebook page and follow the instructions on the post. Also head on over to my Instagram post for a second entry. You may also ask friends and family to enter in case they win for you (and they would also benefit from reading it!).
The competition closes and a winner will be drawn on September 20th 2019, the day the book officially comes out and is released to the world!
I hope you’ll enter and I look forward to posting it off to the winner! Small acts of kindness can put big smiles on peoples’ faces.
I have written quite a few times before, expressing the difficulties that many people with thyroid issues such as hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s, face with remaining in employment.
As well as ensuring that you are on the right thyroid medication for you (which can really improve your quality of life and overall health), that thyroid levels are optimal and any other issues such as low vitamin levels and adrenal dysfunction are addressed, the below suggestions can also help you to achieve a good work-life balance when you have a thyroid condition.
