ThyCa Adds New E-Mail Support Group on Childbearing and Thyroid Cancer

01/2008

ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc., is pleased to announce the formation of its tenth e-mail support group to meet specific needs of people whose lives have been touched by thyroid cancer.

The Childbearing and Thyroid Cancer Support Group brings together women and men of childbearing age who are coping with issues related to childbearing during testing, treatment, and follow-up for thyroid cancer.

The group description notes, “We discuss fertility, pregnancy, maternity, childbearing, and being parents. We share our experiences, strength, and hope. We offer each other understanding and encouragement. We share tips for what has helped us cope with the challenges we experience. We do not give medical advice.”

This free support group is available 24 hours a day to people worldwide. Instructions for joining the group are on the ThyCa web site in the Find Support section, linked at the left side of the Home Page.

ThyCa also has nine other free e-mail support groups: Thyroid Cancer (for papillary and follicular thyroid cancer); Advanced Thyroid Cancer (for people coping with metastatic papillary and follicular thyroid cancer); Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer; Medullary Thyroid Cancer; Pediatric Thyroid Cancer; Long-Term Survivors; Caregivers; Love, Loss, and Legacy; and ThyCa Mental Challenges. ThyCa volunteers also facilitate a live online thyroid cancer mutual support group on Monday evenings.

For information about thyroid cancer, free support services and publications, free regional workshops, and the annual International Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference, contact ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc., a nonprofit organization of thyroid cancer survivors, family members, and health care professionals. Call toll-free 1-877-588-7904, e-mail to thyca@thyca.org, or visit ThyCa’s web site.
