“When you know better, you do better.”
When we know more about thyroid cancer, we can do better in the prevention, detection, treatment, and support of thyroid cancer patients.
Thyroid cancer is one of the most rapidly growing cancers, with over 60,000 cases diagnosed each year.
The butterfly shaped thyroid gland at the base of the neck controls and regulates everything from your temperature, heartbeat, metabolism, energy, and even your mood, with thyroid cells found in every cell of the body. Just like a butterfly, the thyroid gland is small, yet vastly important, and when cancer assaults the thyroid, it not only renders the thyroid useless, it disrupts the harmony of the entire body.
The Love Your Thyroid Foundation’s mission is to raise critically needed funds to donate to thyroid cancer research and foster awareness about thyroid cancer.
