The new low iodine diet sheet aims to help patients who are to be treated with radioactive iodine.

This can be viewed on line or you can download a copy of the diet sheet from our “Media” section using the “Download - Brochures and Flyers” tab.

The diet sheet has advice, along with a number of meal suggestions, to assist with planning and preparing meals during the period leading up to treatment.

In order to help with future planning and support for patients there is also a questionnaire available for completion.

Again, this can either be downloaded as a hard copy and returned to the address at the bottom of the sheet or completed on line using the following link

TCSGW will be hosting their annual Summer Party at the Spinney and Island View Grill and Cafe , Swanbridge on Friday, 15th of July 2016.
This year the event is being kindly sponsored by McDonalds Barry, Fordthorne Motor Park, Penarth Road Cardiff and The Deli , High Street , Barry.
We appreciate the kind support of these businesses whose generosity enables us to make such a difference.

The final event of Awareness Month 2015 involved our participation at the South Wales Cancer Network Patient Conference at Margam. Once again this was a most enjoyable and successful day with TCSGW able to have a stand distributing materials to interested parties in attendance at this event.

We were also very fortunate to be invited to give an address to the participants and this was very well received by those present.

The 35th British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons Scientific Meeting was held on the 8th and 9th of October 2015 at the Phyllis Court Club , Henley on Thames.

TCSGW were very fortunate to be invited to be present at this event and to share a stand with Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust. There was a great deal of interest shown in our work and our support for patients and their families at a challenging time following a thyroid cancer diagnosis.

In November TCSGW were invited to attend a meeting sponsored by Eisai at the Royal Society of Medicine, Wimpole Street, London. It was an excellent meeting - very informative, featuring many and varied speakers.

Dr Moss gave an excellent address discussing the iNATT project, clinical trials and research updates. Again Dr Moss highlighted the fact that without the work of TCSGW this project would not be taking place.

The end of November saw 6 representatives form TCSGW en route to Saundersfoot Harbour to present medals to the participants in Captain Cymru’s November Challenge.

The weather was absolutely atrocious but that did not dampen the spirits and generous support of Captain Cymru and his amazing fundraisers.
Captain Cymru (aka Matthew Evans) had organised the November Challenge which ran from Friday 30th October to Saturday 28th November 2015

The Challenge was to raise funds for our group to enable us to continue our work supporting thyroid cancer patients and supporting research into this rare form of cancer.
