ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association (www.thyca.org) is delighted to welcome Sherryl Pascal, Mrs. New Jersey American Beauty 2008 and thyroid cancer survivor, to its outreach for Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month and beyond. She will also speak at the 11th International Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, October 17-19, 2008.
Pascal highlights Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month and its sponsor, ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, on her web site’s home page.
She speaks out to raise awareness of thyroid cancer, one of the few cancers that is increasing in incidence, and promotes early detection through neck checks as well as expert treatment, lifelong management, and research to find cures for all thyroid cancer.
Residents of Westfield, New Jersey, Pascal and her husband of 15 years, Roy, are parents of three children, ages 11, 12, and 14. Sherryl is an accomplished interior designer whose home has been featured in several magazines. Once a ballerina, she now holds the seat of Board President of the New Jersey Ballet Guild. She has been cast in film and TV productions and considers her greatest privilege to be a stay-at home mother and raise their children.

Thank you to the ThyCa volunteers who helped raise awareness of thyroid cancer on national television broadcasts in September.
Four California ThyCa volunteers took part in Stand Up To Cancer’s networking luncheon and nationally televised program in Los Angeles on September 5.
Eight ThyCa volunteers from Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York were part of the invited VIP studio audience during two broadcasts of Good Morning America in New York City. They met and were photographed with hosts Robin Roberts and Diane Sawyer and guest Richard Gere.
We greatly appreciate your support, and the support of the program hosts, for thyroid cancer awareness.

“I am almost at my 2-year marker and last year I did not have the courage to place brochures in the work place. This year I want to try and make my colleagues aware. I guess it is my way of trying to give back.”

2 Turkey legs
Mix all ingredients in pan, and roll turkey legs in mixture, coating well. Cover with aluminum foil. Cook for 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees. This can be used for chicken also. Serve with steamed veggies and it’s great.
Terri writes, “Hello, l wanted to send this as I am a new cancer patient and have had a time eating since I am from the south and everything I really cooked was fried, had gravy on it, and so on. But this turkey is very good.”
Thank you, Terri!
