“If we keep calling it a good cancer, we poison the well and are at risk of funding drying up for 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.
