Join us in our campaign to stop calling it the “good cancer”

ThyTabono has partnered with multiple organizations to launch our campaign “Stop Calling it the ‘Good’ Cancer.”

While all of us survivors are grateful that thyroid cancer has a 98% 5-year relative survival rate (according to the American Cancer Society),
there is no positive adjective that can be placed in front of the word CANCER and makes it easier to swallow.

The reality is that this toxic positivity has caused more harm than good.

No Cancer is a ‘Good’ Cancer and our mission is to shed light upon this.
