Welcome to the My Cancer Story Podcast website!  My name is Jess Thomas Nelson and I am the creator and host of The My Cancer Story Podcast and also a cancer survivor.  I was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer early in January of 2020.  From the moment my cancerous nodule was felt, it was a whirlwind from the ultrasound, to the biopsy to the diagnosis and ultimately my thyroidectomy February 5, 2020.  While recovering, I was utilizing western and eastern medicine to help my body adjust to it's new normal.  One of the eastern practices that I've always loved and has always worked for me is Acupuncture.  One session while I was lying there on the table, it the idea of starting a podcast snuck into my head.  I was thinking to myself that I have known and met so many people throughout my life that have had cancer or a loved one with cancer.  That led me to think that so many people with these experiences have a story to share, and I wanted to be the one to help them get it out there!
