“It is the four-year anniversary of Sophia's thyroid cancer surgery. Every year, I think, gets a little bit better. ⁠

The thing no one tells you about cancer is that it's not just a physical issue. The cancer can be removed and the follow-up scans can be clear, and yet, there is still the anxiety of "I had cancer" hanging there, in the balance. ⁠

But now, four years later, I see my daughter as the incredibly strong (and strong-willed), insightful, driven young woman that can say she's been through some stuff and come out on the other side. ⁠

She took this bad hand life dealt her and wrestled with it and felt the emotion of it and eventually pushed through it. ⁠

It's been hard and messy and ugly and awful and yet inspiring and uplifting and amazing all at the same time. And I'm so thankful every single day for her health. And thankful everyday for the doctors and surgeons and yeah, the therapist, who helped get her here. ⁠

So, it's bittersweet. For a long time, it didn't feel like a day to celebrate, but somehow, this year, it does. Because it was the day they took the cancer. Her first step toward healing. ⁠

And that's something I will never, ever, take for granted. What a gift.” -Courtney

Thanks for sharing Sophia’s inspiring story, Courtney!
