Light a Tree for Thyroid!

Do you have thyroid disease? Does someone you know have
thyroid disease?


Many out there are desperately looking for answers – we are trying to be a source of assistance to them.

Donations no matter how big or how small help to:
  • Deliver programs and assist with research.
  • Provide up to date medical information on the various types of thyroid diseases.
  • Produce our newsletter, Thyrobulletin, containing up to date articles on issues regarding thyroid disease and TFC activities.
  • Reach those in remote areas where the internet is not so accessible.

Please help us continue our work of Thyroid Awareness, Support and Research.

Every $25.00 donation puts a light on our Thyroid Tree.
