Sofia Vergara is renowned for her upbeat personality and positive outlook on life. She is unmistakably funny and is always about having fun in life. But the star has faced a devastating health diagnosis previously in life.
The America’s Got Talent star was one of the many celebrities who featured on the Stand Up to Cancer charity telethon this year. She opened up about the moment she was told aged 28 that she had thyroid cancer. She heartily told everyone about her experience with the whole thing.
“At 28 years old during a routine doctor’s visit, my doctor felt a lump in my neck, They did a lot of tests and told me finally I had thyroid cancer. When you’re young and you hear the word ‘cancer’, your mind goes to so many places but I tried not to panic and I decided to get educated.”
The AGT star was fortunate that it was found in the very early stage. She read every book about it to gather more information about it and have knowledge through the whole treatment process. Her Doctor and family were an integral part of her support during the hard time.
Sofia previously revealed why she initially kept her cancer battle out of the spotlight. Sofia has opened up about battling thyroid cancer in the past and told she had to have her thyroid removed. As a result, she has a hypothyroid condition and need to take medicine to treat it.
We are very thankful for where she is now after all those battles. She has been actively involved in foundations that treat Cancer and is very passionate to aware people about it. She encompasses all the qualities needed to actually be a strong woman.
