A year and a half ago, I got a call that really really left me feeling shook (one of my new favorite terms). The nurse on the phone asked if I could hold for the doctor and instantly I knew this call wasn’t going to end the way I had hoped it would. His voice came on and told me that the nodule they had biopsied had come back malignant...then he paused and I filled the gap with an “Okay”, he then asked if I knew what the word malignant meant (I think he was surprised by my calmness?!). So again I filled the quietness with a “Yes, that means I have cancer." Tears filled my eyes and I just wanted to hang up the phone. He filled me in on what to expect next and then we hung up. Ashley was with me and she was just as shocked as I was (naively I really had never even considered the possibility that it could’ve actually have been cancer—and if you know me you know that I was THE BIGGEST hypochondriac growing up).Read More

No...not that 'C' word guys!!!
Hey guys, it's Jordan. Earlier this month #thegirlsofbp were hit with some pretty big news that kind of made us stop in our tracks. I got a call letting me know I had cancer...yes, that 'C' word. Nothing can properly prepare you for hearing those words.
The doctors found a lump on the left side of my thyroid and after doing a biopsy we found out that it was malignant (cancerous). The lump is two and a half centimeters big and that makes it a pretty big one. They will remove my entire thyroid and I will be on a thyroid supplement for the rest of my life.
There are so many things left unknown at this point BUT one thing we do know is that it's definitely time to get this out of me!!!! Today is the day for me...today is my surgery day! So many answers will come out of this day, so many unknowns will begin to be known! More biopsies will be done, full body scans are coming soon, and lots of follow up appointments will be scheduled.
