It is not for Thyroid cancer but for Thyroid awareness in general. I filled out a form to recieve brochures.... Today I recieved it all in t mail. I got 200 Check Your Neck- Self examination cards, 200 Diabetes Disaster Plan cards (I got them because my mom has diabetes). All of these I will be taking to my family Dr.'s office. I also got a car magnet and 5 shirt/jacket pins.
They sent it all to me for FREE, I didn't even have to pay for the shipping....
My Dr.'s office has NO info on Thyroid awareness so now I can give them some =)
... I just got my package yesterday. Neck check cards, pins and a Empower magazines to share. I am taking them to my Thyroid Coffee Break in Denver on May 20th in honor o...f World Thyroid Awareness which is May 25th. Joi9n us is Spirit. Leave your name and where you are from with a "Toast". Your "Toast will be put on a card and drawn and read by some one attending the Thyroid Awareness Coffee Break. That person will represent you as your proxy. Join us. We had over 200 for our very first Coffee Break. Can we beat it??? Yes we can!!!!

By the way I will have blue and "paisley" ribbons for those that do attend in person. We are encouaged to ware "paisley" be it a tie, scarf, blouse or skirt. Or in our case a ribbon. Paisley was picked by the Thyroid Awareness because of it's resemblance to a cross section of thyroid fllicles, the tiny spheres that the thyroid gland is made up of. So wear "Paisley" the week of May 20th.See More
Thyroid disease is more common than diabetes or heart disease. Thyroid disease is a fact of life for as many as 30 million Americans – and more than half of those people remain undiagnosed.
