I am a national gaurdsmen activated almost two years ago and was just diagnosed in august with thyroid cancer. I am in a unique situation because of my location so I have had no contact with military doctors yet. Now that we are about to be deactivated I wanted to know if my medical benifits will continue, because obviously my treatment is not over. I am scheduled to have my first radioactive iodine treatment in october and should have no more treatments until next year. They will probably release me from active duty but I have no idea where it goes from there. My unit has never dealt with anything like this before, so I was wondering if anyone had any insight. Thanks.
