Cancer Survivor Sharon Parker Is on a Mission. Sharon Parker thought she had a bad case of allergies. But as time went on, she felt instinctively that allergies were not the problem. Sharon asked for a chest x-ray. The x-ray results led to more tests and confirmed her worst fears. She had cancer. As if that news weren’t bad enough, Sharon soon learned that she had two separate cancers Hodgkin’s Disease and thyroid cancer.
Determined to fight the diseases that threatened her life, Sharon sought out Dr. Andre Goy, internationally known hematologist oncologist at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Thanks to his expertise and treatment, she is alive. Now, in her memoir, Look Out Cancer, Here I Come, Sharon Parker tells her own story of survival and draws from her experience to offer encouragement to others. Among the advice she shares:
Follow your instincts to get more tests. People are misdiagnosed everyday.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions of health professionals.
During treatment, surround yourself with positive people.
Focus on today and plan for tomorrow.
Don’t underestimate the power of caregivers and those who offer help.
Today, Sharon’s mission is raising money for lymphoma research through her book and through the Life Lover Foundation, which she founded.
