2014 BLOG – DAY 24 thyroid scars unite!

24 Jan

The power of sharing. 

Tonight I realized that sometimes peak performance comes down to realizing you can do it — because others have done it before.

Sometimes the confidence it takes to perform comes down to knowing there are others who totally understand where you’ve been, what you are going through, and share what the road ahead looks like.

I had a glimpse of that tonight in Portland. We painted a mural in honor of thyroid awareness. But it was more like painting a picture of that “road ahead” for me.

It was a reunion with my fabulous surgeon, Dr. Mira Milas!
It was an amazing event with Joni from Bottle & Bottega Portland!
And it was an introduction to another thyroid patient and survivor Katee Sackhoff.

The night consisted of comparing and showing off our scars:


Making a small contribution:

And seeing the big picture come toghether:

Here’s the most important lesson for me — recognizing all the beautiful, amazing, incredible pieces it takes to make up the whole.

And getting a little boost from someone who has been in this game a little longer than I have.
There’s hope in that.
Seeing is believing.

More tomorrow.

    I guess there’s always hope – it just seems to get buried some times.
    Thanks for reminding us, as you always do.
