New Thyroid Cancer Patient Information DVD

Watch "Thyroid Cancer Uncovered" clip

Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust has produced the first ever comprehensive patient information film about Thyroid Cancer and is delighted to announce the launch of "Thyroid Cancer Uncovered: A Patient's Guide "!!

Demand for the film from patients is very high. They tell us that this is what they require at diagnosis.

The DVD is free to all UK patients, and Butterfly are asking all Thyroid Cancer clinicians for their kind support to offer a copy to their newly diagnosed patients.

A donation to help with production and shipping costs would be appreciated.

The film is a comprehensive step by step guide about the disease and treatment from diagnosis to long term follow up.

Its chapters are presented by leading UK Thyroid Cancer clinicians. We also follow four patient journeys.

The film has been endorsed by the BAETS, British Thyroid Association, British Thyroid Foundation, A.M.E.N.D., TCSG Wales, Hypopara UK and Thyroid Cancer Alliance.
