November 4, 2015
As we give thanks later this month for our many gifts and blessings, we wish to help others, like ourselves, who are among the many thousands of people diagnosed with thyroid cancer —the fastest increasing cancer over recent years. In 2015 alone approximately 62,450 individuals in the United States and more than 200,000 people worldwide will have received a diagnosis of thyroid cancer. The disease occurs in all age groups from children through seniors and affects three times as many females as males.
We are inviting you to help us support the work of ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association. ThyCa is an international organization that educates people with thyroid cancer and their families to better understand the disease, provides them with supportive activities, and funds research to create a future free of thyroid cancer.
Please help the all-volunteer ThyCa Manhattan Support Group reach our goal of raising $12,000 by December 2nd to continue ThyCa’s important work. We can tell you — from personal experience — it means so much!
Please click here to donate.
You can also donate by mailing your check to ThyCa, P.O. Box 1102, Olney, MD 20830-1102. Please write “ThyC Manhattan Fundraiser” in the memo field. ThyCa is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As such, all contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS. Please share the opportunity to give by asking your employer, where possible, for a corporate match.
Many warm thanks and best wishes for a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
The Members of the ThyCa Manhattan Support Group
