Thyroid Cancer Topics

Thyroid cancer diagnosis can be difficult. Please be reassured that you are not alone. My goal is to offer help, hope, and support to strengthen your knowledge through my blog posts & articles, help you feel part of a community of survivors as you cope with emotional and practical concern and introduce you to the many free services, information resources, and events that can help you.

Here are some places to start reading on Thyroid Cancer. My blog also has links to additional helpful resources. If you have questions or need help finding information, e-mail me at verge.gamotan [at] I will get back to you as I can.

I personally invite you also to connect with others who have thyroid cancer, through our many free support information, as well as to learn from my experience. The goal of all these services and resources is to ensure that no one has to feel alone while coping with thyroid cancer.


The day I learned that I have cancer.
The battle against Thyroid Cancer has just begun, join me in this fight!
