Thanks Catherine Bell
Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc. is very grateful for the support
and assistance of Catherine Bell, most recently known for her starring
role as "Mac" on the CBS Television series "JAG."
Ms. Bell, who has had thyroid cancer herself, has done an invaluable
service by donating her time and public persona to help raise awareness
for ThyCa and thyroid cancer in general.
The American Cancer
Society and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimate
that there will be about 30,180 new cases of thyroid cancer in the
United States in 2006. Of these new cases, about 22,590 will occur
in women and about 7,590 will occur in men. About 1,500 people (870
women and 630 men) will die of thyroid cancer in 2006.
This is a new
record high total. It is the fastest percentage increase of any cancer,
and almost double the number of new thyroid cancer cases 10 years
and treatment can be vital. Unfortunately, every year many people
lose their lives to thyroid cancer. Ms. Bell's efforts will undoubtedly
help many people.
Catherine Bell for her selflessness and we wish her every success
in a long and healthy life. ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association,
Inc. is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of thyroid
cancer survivors, family members, and health care professionals.
