The British Thyroid Association guidelines for the diagnosis and the treatment of thyroid cancer have now been published (July 2014) in the journal “Clinical Endocrinology”. TCSGW were involved in the consultation process and in revising the patient information leaflets that are an accompaniment to the new guidelines.
It is fantastic that Richard Egan - a Consultant Endocrine Surgeon based here in Wales will be running the Marathon in support of TCSGW.
Richard said. "I will be raising money for @TCSGW. They provide much needed support for Thyroid Cancer patients across Wales. A fantastic group. Please give generously if you can." Follow Richard's progress on Twitter @MrRJEgan
National Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Tissue bank. (iNATT)
The main thrust of our fund raising efforts is directed to provide financial help to establish and maintain this tissue bank to enable research into Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer.
The cost of setting up the tissue bank was in the region of £10,500. The Support Group have pledged to fund the whole project. The tissue bank is established at the Velindre Cancer Centre Cardiff under the leadership of Dr Laura Moss and will enable researchers from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world to access samples for their research. This is the rarest form of thyroid cancer (only about 0.17 per 100,000).
TCSGW & B decided to research and produce a recipe book to fund the iNATT project.
"Favourite Foods of the Famous ....and not so famous" costs just £5 per copy.
Our very first response was from the legendary Sir Tom Jones - who sent us his best wishes along with his favourite recipe - a true star!
All proceeds from sales of the recipe book go to support the iNATT project.
You've read the rest, now read the best!! Don't miss out on this opportunity!
