How your fundraising makes a difference

As well as creating greater awareness of thyroid conditions, you’ll be helping us to support people across the UK to live better with thyroid disease.

Will you help us put a spotlight on thyroid disease?

Holding a livestream event helps to create awareness for this often ‘invisible’ disease.

Here are some key facts to share with your supporters

·         Up to 1 in 20 people in the UK live with a thyroid disorder

·         This tiny gland has an enormous effect on both our physical and emotional health

·         Thyroid disorders are up to 10 times more common in women than in men

·         Thyroid cancer is rare but is increasing in incidence

·         It’s often described as an ‘invisible’ illness. Symptoms can be non-specific so get confused with other conditions. A simple blood test can help diagnose a thyroid disorder

·         Research into thyroid disease is massively underfunded compared with other autoimmune conditions

With your help, we can support people to live better with thyroid disease.

Thank you
