Since our founding, the Light of Life Foundation has passionately advocated for thyroid cancer patients, representing their voices as they seek the best diagnosis, treatment and survivorship options.
The Foundation was a pioneer in using digital platforms to provide consistently updated medical content and opportunities for thyroid patients and survivors to build a community. On our website, the Foundation features information from medical experts that allows patients to understand options, particularly those that are recently developed, and become strong advocates for themselves. Through our private Facebook group, patients and survivors share stories and support each other through their experience with thyroid cancer. More broadly, the Foundation has introduced the risk of thyroid cancer, and the importance of getting your neck checked, to the general public through years of awareness campaigns. These campaigns have appeared in print, radio, outdoor advertising and, now, through social media platforms.
