REACT Thyroid Foundation has set up this memorial page so that loved ones who have succumbed to thyroid cancer can be honored; donations can be raised to support finding new avenues of treating thyroid cancer; and most importantly, we can find a cure. Funds raised can be sent to the organization of each individual's choice or, if preferred, to the grantor the REACT Foundation chooses. REACT Thyroid Foundation is a 501c3 non profit foundation that is run solely by volunteers. Other than operating expenses, all funds go to research in treating or curing thyroid cancer.

The following funds have been established in memory of those who have fought the battle against medullary thyroid cancer. To inquire about setting up a memorial fund on behalf of a loved one, please contact us.
