Thycan Survivors

survivor-informed advocacy for thyroid cancer survivors

For the country's most rapidly increasing cancer, we must
do better.

Chloé McElmury

founder and 10+ year papillary thyroid cancer survivor


The mission of Thycan Survivors is to more accurately represent the survivorship of thyroid cancer by increasing thoughtful awareness, advocacy, and understanding.


If thyroid cancer survivors are supported with more and thoughtful survivor-focused awareness, advocacy, and understanding, they will be able to improve thyroid cancer education, become their own advocates, create a national community, and create change in medical and social fields—as many doctors and friends still tell survivors they have the “best” cancer.
