I was diagnosed with Stage 4 papillary thyroid cancer in June 2005, and have had to undergo several major surgeries and radiotherapies since then. I hope my books might help anybody newly diagnosed so that they know what to expect from treatment, although the way radioiodine treatment is administered today is slightly different than in 2006.

As of 2020 I am still alive and kicking, and am thankful for the 15 bonus years I've had so far. I'm back at work part-time as a medical secretary, and am also writing women's fiction (under a pseudonym) and enjoying getting to know my five grandchildren.

Here's to good health! You can find me at http://glendashepherd.co.uk
