Thyroid Cancer Canada is a National Organization of Thyroid Cancer Survivors dedicated to providing Emotional Support and Information to those affected by the Disease.
Thyroid cancer is treated differently from other cancers. Even though they have cancer, thyroid cancer patients are not often treated in cancer centers, and do not have access to the same psychological and emotional support as other cancer patients. Our programming provides them with much-needed peer support, hope and encouragement.
Share Your Story
Whatever your story, new patients and those who are struggling with thyroid cancer will appreciate your insights and your experience.
Everyone who had to deal thyroid cancer has a story to tell. It may be difficult, may have many twists and turns, or it may be something that just came and went without too much fuss. Like the Stories of Strength in our Patient Support section – that's where your story will be posted – accessible to those who are looking for answers, encouragement or inspiration.
We thank you for sharing your story. Stories are subject to editing and review. All pertinent stories will be published as soon as possible.
New Online Forum is Live
Thank you for your patience. The new online forum is now live.
The Thyroid Cancer Canada Online Forum is a moderated, peer-support program, similar to a chatroom. The TCC Online Forum helps you to connect with hundreds of patients from across Canada. It is a private place – you can use an alias name on your icon identity if you prefer.
We have a 2-step process to join, as this helps us keep out spammers (we approve all new members before they can join in, just to to help ensure they are actually patients or family members).

Thyroid Cancer Canada
The event is set to run 1 pm - 1 am on the arena floor. Camping is available at the Millet Lions Club campground located behind the venue. Contact the Millet and District Lions Club for details.
The event was started as a memorial to a local Millet man, Mike Gauthier, whose love for music was well-known throughout the community. The interest in the festival grew at a rapid rate and we are anticipating upwards of 2,000 people this year. The purpose of this event is to let young musicians perform in a free, all-day long event that is great for the whole family!
