For Thyroid Cancer Survivors

I wasn't aware of the Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc. before receiving a note recently. I am happy to pass along information about a conference this weekend:

Thyroid cancer survivors and families from around the United States, as well as Canada, Brazil, and United Kingdom, will gather in Danvers, Massachusetts, on October 16-18, 2009, to learn from expert physician specialists about the latest research in thyroid cancer, during the 12th International Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference.

Speakers at the more than 100 sessions at the Sheraton Ferncroft Hotel at 50 Ferncroft Road, Danvers, Massachusetts, include more than 30 medical professionals, mental health professionals, an attorney, other specialists in well-being, and thyroid cancer survivors and caregivers. There are speakers about each type of thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular, medullary, anaplastic, and variants), for people of all ages at all phases of testing, treatment, and follow-up.

This educational and supportive event is FREE to anyone who requests a scholarship to cover the $50 registration fee (or $30 for one day). Walk-in attendees are welcome.

Cancer name itself is dangerous. Thyroid cancer is very rare. It starts from thyroid gland and is kind of neck cancer. According to a new study, it has been found that those who stay in volcanic regions, are at higher risk of thyroid cancer. If anyone observes symptoms of it, should consult doctor immediately.

Didn’t know how grave thyroid cancer would be until I saw some articles a few days back. It’s good to know that people do get cured as the word cancer implies something really critical. These seminars also help people motivate those who are still suffering from the disease that they, too, can make it. This will probably give them the motivation they need to live on and continue life battling with thyroid cancer.
