Welcome to Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust

Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust is the first national supporter of patients with Thyroid Cancer.

As a group dedicated solely to the support of patients with Thyroid Cancer we can offer fellow thyroid cancer patients who wish to join us the following:

  • Use of the dedicated helpline to speak to someone who has had the disease.
  • E-mail and telephone contact with group members to share experiences
  • A "buddy" to help you through the stages of surgery, Radioiodine treatment and follow up
  • Access to reliable up-to-date written information about the disease
  • Access to a group member in clinic at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care (NCCC), Freeman Hospital

Please leave a message on our answer phone and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
