“Our mission is to fight cancer through
research, education and inspiration.
Attitude is everything; join us.”
Supporting and Inspiring Teenagers Dealing with All Cancers
For 2016, our goal is to purchase and distribute at least 1,200 more Teen Support Bags to hospitals and organizations who are serving teenagers battling cancer throughout the country to give those teenagers the support and inspiration they deserve. We have expanded our hospital partners list to almost 70 so far! Bite Me Cancer also will be providing support programs where teenagers with cancer can come together to have fun and share their experiences.
Thyroid Cancer Research
For 2016, we plan to fund our 4th thyroid cancer research grant. We completed raising funds for our 3rd grant in late 2015 which will be assigned in mid-2016. We assigned our 2nd thyroid cancer research grant in 2015. Click here for more information.
Did you know that Thyroid Cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the country? Have you heard that Thyroid Cancer is the "easy" cancer or the "good" cancer? We say: "The only good cancer is NO cancer!" The thyroid is in a very sensitive and important area of the body, and the impact of losing your thyroid as well as cancer spread beyond the thyroid can be quite a challenge. In some cases, the outcomes can be devastating to the individual. If you are looking for medical professionals to help you with Thyroid Cancer, please make sure they have a great deal of experience with Thyroid Cancer and not just thyroid issues.
