THE STORY:

The REACT Thyroid Foundation was founded in August 2011 by a courageous young woman, Michelle LeBeau. In 2009, at the age of 30, Michelle was diagnosed with a rare and incurable form of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma. At the time of diagnosis the cancer had spread to her lungs and was classified as stage 4C. There is no known cure for medullary thyroid carcinoma, or any form of advanced stage thyroid cancer, and it is not responsive to traditional chemotherapy. 

Research

Raise funds to support the research of top doctors, scientists and institutions

Education 

Increase early detection through "Neck Checks" at home and during routine doctor appointments 

Action 

Encourage those touched by thyroid cancer to join this important crusade 

Cancer 

Grow support for thyroid cancer which currently lacks the funding other cancer research receives due to its low incidence rate 

Thyroid 

Reduce the number of thyroid cancer cases which the American Cancer Society estimates will be 56,000 new cases in the U.S. in 2012 

Until recently, there have been little to no options for those diagnosed with advanced thyroid cancer. Fortunately in recent years there has been great progress made in the area of clinical research and promising treatments are on the horizon. In order to keep the momentum going it is critical that the doctors and scientists have adequate funding to develop clinical trials and conduct research. Michelle was inspired to help make a difference and decided to start a non-profit foundation to do just that.
