Support Groups

Our support groups are free and open to any and all survivors and their families and friends. In these groups, people share thyroid cancer information, their experiences with their thyroid cancer, and insights on how they are coping with thyroid cancer, and support.
Special Interest Support Groups

We are excited to announce that ThyCa now has special virtual interest support groups that meet regularly via Zoom or other online discussion tools. These groups are free and open to anyone affected by a situation related to the special interest. These groups may also provide support by phone and email.

Local Support Groups

ThyCa remains cautious due to the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. We do expect some support group meeting sites to begin opening for in-person meetings. We realize not all locations will open for the foreseeable future. As such, ThyCa will continue to hold virtual meetings. We encourage all support group members to be careful and stay safe.

Check your local group’s web pages for details. Groups holding virtual meetings are listed below with a picture of a telephone (picture of phone). You're welcome to participate in any virtual group meeting, even if you don't live near where that group meets.

Click here for a printable list of all groups that hold virtual meetings sorted by when they meet. Note that sometimes groups change their schedules for a given month because of holidays, etc. Therefore, you should check the group's web page each month to confirm a given meeting.

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 support groups are free and open to any and all survivors and their families, students, etc. You may contact the facilitator identified on each page by email or telephone, or you can simply show up on the identified day! Friends and family are always welcome.
