Our Mission of Change

cropped-cropped-lyt_buttefly-011.pngKeenly focused on disrupting our perception of thyroid cancer.

Thyroid cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in new diagnosis and one of the only cancers where the mortality rate is not decreasing, yet it remains massively misunderstood and egregiously underfunded in research. The Love Your Thyroid Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is on a mission to change our perception of this cancer being the “good” cancer and bringing more awareness and research to the prevention, management and cure of thyroid cancer.

Cancer is defined, in short, as a growth that destructively spreads through invasion. How, in any form, can this be good?? The more we discredit this notion of thyroid cancer being a “good” cancer, the more we can raise awareness and education about this disease and follow that with funding that is needed for critical research.

Your generous contribution to the Love Your Thyroid Foundation will be donated to the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association (ThyCa), a non-profit organization of thyroid cancer survivors, family members and health care professionals focused on providing support, education and funding research for thyroid cancer. Every dollar raised will help bring awareness to this misunderstood disease and fund research through ThyCa’s Research Fund, which has awarded 68 grants over the last 14 years to physician researchers all over the world.

About Us

cropped-cropped-lyt_buttefly-011.pngValentine’s Day 2013, I was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer.

The peculiar part of my initial reaction to being diagnosed with Stage II Papillary Thyroid Cancer, and even through the first set of treatments I received, is that I treated it all as fairly inconsequential. I had been told by medical professionals, and believed, that this was the “good cancer” to get. I had convinced myself that this would be easy to resolve and move on from, and I was focused on doing just that.
