Want to workout with me for a great cause? Join me on Wednesday, September 25th at 6:30 pm for a special donation-based FlexFormer class at Flex Studios in Woodbury, NY! I am so excited to host this class with the wonderful Dianna and to have all of the proceeds support the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association (ThyCa) in honor of Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month.
If you are local on Long Island, I would love to see you for a fun 55-minute Pilates class. A $40 donation is suggested and will benefit the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, which helped me greatly when I was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer back in 2013. ThyCa has a wealth of information for newly diagnosed patients, including questions for patients to ask their surgeon, what to expect after thyroid surgery, and even a low-iodine cookbook to help patients prepare for radioactive iodine treatments. This website was an invaluable resource to me and one I always recommend to newly diagnosed patients.
I am beyond grateful that Flex Studios was interested in partnering with me on this fitness fundraiser. Ever since I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of 26, raising awareness through advocacy has been extremely important to me. I was fortunate that my cancer was detected early and I share my story as a way to bring awareness to this disease and the importance of early detection and regular neck checks. Had it not been for the thorough examination performed by my gynecologist at the time, who knows when my cancer may have been discovered? I certainly wasn’t concerned about a cancer diagnosis in my twenties, and up until that appointment, I thought I was relatively healthy.
Since my diagnosis, I have met so many other amazing wellness warriors and advocates who have both inspired me and cheered me on in my own journey. I am honored to be able to share my story and help support other cancer patients and survivors through my work.
