Butterfly was founded by a Newcastle upon Tyne patient following her own diagnosis with Thyroid Cancer in June 2000.
Everyone involved works on a voluntary basis and has either had the disease or been closely involved in the care and support of someone who has.
We are a patient support organisation working closely alongside, and with the full support of, the Multi-Disciplinary Thyroid Cancer Care Team in Newcastle.
