ThyCa Offers New Beaded Bracelet To Raise Thyroid Cancer Awareness

ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Assocation, Inc is proud to announce the addition of a new item to our Spirit Collection for Thyroid Cancer Awareness.

In collaboration with A Different Twist of Oriental, NC, ThyCa is now offering a beautiful turquoise-silver beaded bracelet. The eye-catching stretch-style bracelet is made of Turquoise Fiber Optic glass beads with sterling silver spacer beads and a silver ribbon.

The new bracelets are available in three sizes: 6 ½ inches, 7 ¼ inches, and 8 inches. To choose a size, measure just below the wristbone and add an inch. Each bracelet is available for $18, and the net proceeds benefit ThyCa’s awareness, outreach, support, and research funds.

“Many people have asked us for jewelry to help raise awareness about thyroid cancer, and we believe we have now found a great piece for doing just that” said Leah Guljord, ThyCa Spirit Items Coordinator and thyroid cancer survivor of West Melbourne, Florida. “ThyCa raises awareness year-round to increase early detection, because thyroid cancer is usually treatable when found early. We encourage everyone to ask their doctor for a neck check.”

ThyCa’s web site has photos of the bracelets, pill cases, wristbands, pins, and other thyroid cancer awareness items, plus an order form.

With each order or membership, ThyCa also includes free thyroid cancer awareness brochures and plastic wallet cards listing ThyCa’s free services and contact information.
