Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are exercising an abundance of caution for the well-being of our support group members. As such, we are canceling all scheduled support group meetings for the foreseeable future. Having said this, some support groups are holding virtual meetings in place of their canceled meetings.

Please take care of yourself. We suggest that you follow the precautions recommended by your local health agencies and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

ThyCa Madison is holding a Zoom meeting on Saturday, May 9, at our regular time, 2:00 PM Central. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitator at for connection info. Depending on the success of this meeting, we may continue to meet online until the shelter-in-place order has been lifted and ThyCa approves a return to in-person meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.
