After 2 screenings, her doctor did find cancer and she underwent multiple surgeries to have all the cancerous parts removed. Candace credits watching The Doctors for saving her life and she joins the panel to share her story.

Thankfully, she’s happy to report to The Doctors, “I’ve been in remission for a year and a half.” She goes on to say that all her scans since her surgeries have come back clear. She now gets blood tests every 3 months and yearly scans of her thyroid to monitor for any developing issues.
