about

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. 

We are not focused on the medical aspect of thyroid cancer, or finding a cure. We look to the rhetoric surrounding thyroid cancer survivors, and how we can better share their stories.

Check out our blog for resources and musings
on thyroid cancer, thyroid disease, and
thyroid cancer survivorship.
