Representing Patients with
Thymic Cancers in the UK
ThymicUK is a support and advocacy group for patients with thymic cancers including thymoma and is recognised by The British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG).
We are a community of patients, family members and carers from across the UK and our purposes are to share information, provide support, facilitate research and ultimately to improve the treatments for these rare cancers. Through these endeavours we hope to increase the overall survival and quality of life of patients with thymic cancers.
We do not offer medical advice but we have an active Facebook group where experiences and information can be shared and we hold regular face to face meetings.
A little about the ThymicUK badge
The ThymicUK badge incorporates the zebra stripe, which represents rare cancers and lavender which is used for general cancer awareness.
Wear the ThymicUK badge and help increase awareness of thymic cancers.
