Where Does the Money Go?
Nearly all of ThyCa's expenditures go to support Thyroid Cancer Education, Awareness and Support through our services such as our support groups, web site, toll-free number, annual conference and regional workshops, and newsletters. Our Research Grants are awarded through a scientific peer review system paneled by the American Thyroid Association. We are not affiliated with any specific hospital or research institution and thus we award grants to the applicants that have the best combination of scientific merit, appropriately skilled researchers, the greatest likelihood for success, and the highest benefit for the thyroid cancer patient community.
Our research grants are open to researchers and institutions worldwide.
