I'm a 35 year old mother and wife living with cancer. My two oldest children and I were diagnosed six years ago with MEN2a and Medullary Thyroid Cancer. At the time I was also diagnosed with Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer and Pheochromocytomas (adrenal tumors). Everything since then has been one very loopy rollercoaster ride.

She did not want to test me because I was not overweight.  But I already started to gain weight. After testing me we discovered that I was hypothyroid. I started on medication. I still did not lose weight after months of being on the medication.  I found an endo about a hour away from me...
