We are so glad you found us! This is a web site designed for people with Thymic Carcinoma and those closest to them by people with Thymic Carcinoma. We remember well that day our lives imploded. That moment that changed our lives forever when the doctor uttered those three terrifying words, “you have cancer”. Moreover, we know the despair of hearing that it is not JUST cancer but a rare cancer for which there is little in the way of effective treatment. So if you are one of us and have just heard that news or if you are a long-time fighter of this disease take a deep breath and read on. We are here to lend support, information and experience based advice.
We will bet you have been told NOT to read the internet (which is of course why you are reading this). On this site you will find answers to frequently asked questions, current scientific research papers with understandable summaries designed for the average person (in case you don’t have a medical license) and practical information on clinical trials, genomic testing and common treatments. We are not a medical organization but we will provide the best medical information we can find or that's available. The good news is that we have members that are Healthcare Providers and focused on Thymic Carcinoma that contribute to our site.
