Did you know that Thyroid Cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the country? Have you heard that Thyroid Cancer is the "easy" cancer or the "good" cancer? We say: "The only good cancer is NO cancer!" The thyroid is in a very sensitive and important area of the body, and the impact of losing your thyroid as well as cancer spread beyond the thyroid can be quite a challenge.

Supporting and Inspiring Teenagers Dealing with All Cancers: Our goal for 2014 is to ship out another 400 Teen Support Bags to those teenagers battling all kinds of cancer, after we distributed 200 Teen Support Bags in 2013.
