ThyCa Adds New E-Mail Support Group for Long-Term Survivors

January 2002

ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, Inc., is pleased to announce the formation of its seventh e-mail support group to meet specific
needs of people whose lives have been touched by thyroid cancer.

The Long-Term Survivors Support Group brings together people who are past the initial years of treatment and follow-up for thyroid cancer. In this
group they share experiences, give encouragement, and offer suggestions for dealing with the issues involved in the lifelong monitoring involved in
thyroid cancer.

This free support group is available 24 hours a day to people worldwide. Instructions for joining the group are on the ThyCa web site
<> in the Support Section.

ThyCa’s six other support groups include the general Thyroid Cancer Support Group, Advanced Thyroid Cancer Support Group, Anaplastic Thyroid
Cancer Support Group, Caregivers Support Group, Medullary Thyroid Cancer Support Group, and Pediatric Thyroid Cancer Support Group. ThyCa
volunteers also facilitate two live online thyroid cancer mutual support groups on America Online on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
