Lacuna Loft is excited to continue introducing some guest bloggers! These great folks represent a variety of perspectives on the myriad of topics covered here at Lacuna Loft. Before everyone starts really getting into the nitty-gritty of all they have to say, we wanted to introduce them a bit. Without further ado, here is Cheryl!

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2014 at the age of 33.  When cancer enters your life, you have no choice but to let it in…and then declare war and find a way to rid yourself of that uninvited and unwelcome house guest!

I’m not only a cancer survivor, I’m so much more than that.  I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a full-time employee, etc.  My Mom and my husband have been my primary caregivers.  Add in my 4 children (ages 11, 7, 5, and 2) and a couple of best friends and you have the basis of my support system.

My family is my life. I love finding new activities for us to do, new places to explore, and new adventures for us to experience.  In my down time I love to read and do yoga.  I’m also a member of an amazing local resource that provides support to people who are living with cancer.  I’m a work in progress and I’m happy for a chance to be able to give back and help others like me.  There is joy to be found in sharing your experiences and making connections with other people who have encountered the “C” word and are striving to survive and find out how to live life after cancer.
