cropped-cropped-lyt_buttefly-011.pngBelow are resources and organizations we found helpful through our thyroid cancer experience.

ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of thyroid cancer survivors, family members and health care professionals dedicated to support, education, and communication for thyroid cancer survivors, their families and friends. ThyCa also sponsors Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month, year-round activities, and thyroid cancer research grants.

Imerman Angels: Sometimes the best therapy for cancer is just talking to someone who’s been there. Imerman Angels One-on-One Cancer Support was created on the belief that no one should face cancer alone. While each cancer and life situation is unique, Imerman Angels connects cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers with “Mentor Angels” – a cancer survivor or caregiver who is as similar as possible in age, gender, and most importantly, cancer experience. Mentor Angels give cancer fighters and caregivers the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from a peer who has been down the same road before. The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any stage, at any age, living anywhere in the world.
