September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month!
Dear Thyroid™ is passionate about and dedicated to raising awareness for thyroid cancer throughout the entire year. However, during the month of September, we stand together with other organizations and survivors to spread awareness as a unified front.

Dear Thyroid™ has two fabulous campaigns we are launching to recognize thyroid cancer survivors and to create awareness. Be sure to check out the posts below to get the dish. We invite YOU to participate as we make this cancer sexy!

It’s not too late to participate in either of these campaigns!! If you’re interested, email Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Stevie JoEllie’s Cancer Care Fund is sponsoring a petition for the Office of the Surgeon General to recognize thyroid cancer as a public health issue. Please take thirty seconds out of your day and sign the petition.
Thycans is a place for thyroid cancer survivors to connect with each other and share stories and tips for coping with cancer and treatment. Be sure to head over to their site to connect with other patients on their forum.
