My daughter was diagnosed this week

My oldest daughter, Kelly was diagnosed this week with papillary thyroid cancer, the same type I had. She has had an ultrasound and needle biopsy done. Her surgery will be in the next 2 weeks. I feel so bad for her, especially since I have already gone through this. She has a job, husband and 2 small children. I will be helping as much as I can but I have to work also.
I have this guilt that its my fault...that I gave it to her. I know in my head that I shouldn't feel this way but my heart hurts for her. I am hoping that she will have an easier time because she is 22 years younger and doesn't have diabetes to deal with like I have been doing. Anyway I just wanted to share my thoughts tonight. Hugs to everyone!
