Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month!

September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month. Statistic - about 40% of people will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. 1% of those people will have thyroid cancer. 1% of people with a thyroid cancer diagnosis will have Medullary Thyroid Cancer.
Right now there is no cure. Chemo and radiation don't cure us. We don't ever go into remission. MTC is a battle that is fought every day. Thyroid cancer is not the good cancer people get. There is no good cancer ever!
