 Hello,

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Nicky. I am a student in Lithuania, Vilnius University and I'm fundraising to go to Australia in September. I will be visiting Bethesda hospital to have thyroid nodule surgery.

I'm twenty years old and I've always had problems with my thyroid. I was diagnosed eight years ago with hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). It’s impacted me a lot throughout my life. it’s caused me to be overweight and tired all the time.

Unfortunately, my condition got a lot worse and I had to take bigger doses of hormones, various supplements. I began feeling tired and dizzy all the time.

Recently I found out that I have a cancerous thyroid nodule and it changed my life.

Australia was and has always been my childhood dream country. I love to travel and it seems like it will be my last trip. I am in need of  your financial support to cover the travel expenses.

Anything that you can donate would be so incredible.

Thank you for your consideration and support!
