September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month

Everyday all accross America people hear the 3 most life altering words you could ever imagine: " You have cancer."  On that day, these patients lives are changed forever.

It doesn't matter the stage or type of cancer, your race, color, ethnic origin or financial background, those 3 little words are emotionally and, in the vast majority of cases, financially devastating.

Stevie JoEllie's Cancer Care Fund is working tirelessly to reach another kind of day: the day when cancer care related costs are no longer an obstacle to treatment, diagnostic follow up, hormonal replacement therapy or a balance long term wellness plan through our access to care grant program.

The SJCCF Access To Care initiative is designed to provide thyroid cancer patients and survivors insurance deductible and co-pay assistance, serve as a clinical services bridge those who lost healthcare coverage as they aged out of their parents policy, for the underinsured or uninsured waiting for government assistance (medicaid/medicare)and others on a case by case basis.

Thyroid Cancer is the fastest increasing newly diagnosed cancer in America today among people of all ages. As with other cancers early detection is key and women are 3 times more likely to develop the condition. But more importantly young people ages 15 to 35 face unique life long healthcare needs as adult thyroid cancer survivors, needs we are working here to help meet through our access to care initiative.

Help when it matters most. Help when it can protect quality of life. Help that can save lives. We hope you never ever need us, but if you do, we want to be here to help you or someone you love. I invite you today to help us build hope for the future.

Any gift you send will make a huge difference - to those currenly being treated for thyroid cancer, for yourself and for those you love who may face the possibility of cancer in the future. Every step we take could very well benefit someone you love one day.
