Questionnaire about RAI


ThyCa posted this questionnaire in October 2010. It received over 1,000 responses in a week's time. The questionnaire has closed.

Dear Friend,

The U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and Environment of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, chaired by Congressman Edward J. Markey, has asked that we make you aware of their questionnaire regarding whether you've received Radioactive Iodine (I-131) as part of your thyroid cancer care. If you have received I-131, they invite you to complete the following questionnaire as they gather information about your experience. The questionnaire takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Now closed.

ThyCa is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical organization, and our interest in this questionnaire is in helping people better understand the thyroid cancer treatment experience.

They hope to have preliminary results of this questionnaire to present at the International Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference in Dallas, Texas, October 15-17, 2010.

As noted in the cover letter of this questionnaire, your information will remain confidential unless you choose to share it for purposes of being contacted about your specific experience.

If you have already completed the questionnaire, you will receive a thank you rather than being able to participate again. So, please click on the link, and take part if you haven't already.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Together, we are helping to educate people about our thyroid cancer experience.

Wishing you well with your health,

ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc.
