BENEFITING: LIGHT OF LIFE FOUNDATION INC
Let Thyroids Thrive was created by two girls with the hope of spreading awareness of thyroid cancer and its detrimental effects, while seeking ways to personally contribute to the vital cause. Seeing her grandfather's daily struggle with constant fatigue, depression, and life-long medication following his thyroid surgery, Amanda knew she had to help to alleviate similar pain for others in some way. Melissa's discovery of her mother's cancer diagnosis prompted her to scour the internet for hours, researching the illness and its treatments. Our first-hand experiences with devastation caused by thyroid diseases have shaped us into fervent advocators for the cancer awareness, research, and treatment. Thus, we have decided to make an impact in our community. All the money we receive from fundraising will go directly to Light of Life Foundation, a local charity that tirelessly strives to education and support thyroid cancer patients. We believe that small actions have the potential to create monumental results, and if our fundraising efforts are capable of saving one person, we will have succeeded.
