Stevie JoEllie's Cancer Care Fund is very different from other thyroid cancer groups and organizations in that it's number one purpose and goal is patient care and support not research funding. SJCCF aims to alleviate the financial burden of thyroid cancer patients and survivors nationwide.
The National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 45,000 individuals were diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2010, including 34,000 women making it the 8th most common cancer among women nationwide. Current statistical reports and trends during the past 10 years indicate that thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing newly diagnosed cancer worldwide regardless of age, sex, race or ethnic background. Additionally, childhood cancer survivors are also at an increased risk of developing the condition.
