We are a self help/ support group offering support to thyroid cancer patients. This is a rare form of cancer and there is little help available to new and existing patients.

We are proud to provide funding to set up and run the international National Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Tissue bank and Data base (iNATT)which has been set up by our Honorary President Dr Laura Moss, Consultant Oncologist at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.
The tissue bank collects tissue samples donated by ANAPLASTIC thyroid cancer patients from around the world for research into this very rare and aggressive form of thyroid cancer.   

We provide this much needed help to patients, families and friends. We provide information about the treatment and after effects and give out informative booklets.
We also have provided improvements to the two treatment rooms where patients have to stay in isolation while receiving their radio iodine ablation treatment. We have provided flat screen tv's, more comfortable bedding, small fridges , developed an attractive garden outside each room so that patients have a pleasant outlook while they contemplate their future after a cancer diagnosis.
We are members of the international Thyroid Cancer Alliance which promotes awareness of this rare form of cancer.
