Hello! I'm 15 & have thyroid cancer. I was diagnosed at 14, just this past July. I wondered if there were any other teens on here. I would love to chat with other people close to my age concerning cancer. I have just finished up radiation and now am just waiting to find out if the cancer is "gone". I won't know until summer of 2007. Feel free to email me if you are a teenage cancer survivor! [email protected]

    Hi! I'm sorry to say I am not a teen, in fact, I am old enough to be your grandmother. My name is Georgy, and I belong to the Thyroid Cancer Survivors Association as well as CSN. I co-moderate a support group and I have access to many other support groups. I have posted on a special website asking for another teen for you to talk to. I will let you know when I find one.
    Hope this gives you a little peace of mind. There are many, many, thyroid cancer survivors. We will need to be followed up periodically, but there are tons of us. Thanks, Georgy Stevens

    mt_vballer, I have found you what you are looking for. There are three young people in Ohio who were all diagnosed within a year of each other. They have their own website, www.thykidz.com
    and it is well worth looking at. Stephanie Carper is one of them, you can email her at [email protected]. I am working on more teens for you, I put the word out to our support group moderators so hopefully I can find you more shortly. Hope it helps, and hang in there! Hugs, Georgy Stevens

    Hi, I'm 19 and had cancer when I was 3. It was brain cancer. I had radiation, a bonemarrow transplant, chemo...the nasty stuff. I know it's been months since you posted, so how are you doing? I'm doing ok, waiting to get my finals over with so I can go home for the summer. heh. Let me know if you'd like to chat sometime. So once I hit 20, does that mean I'm not qualified to email? LOL!!! ;)
