Originally a North East-based charity (Butterfly North East) supporting patients having their treatment at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care (NCCC), Newcastle General Hospital, Butterfly is now a national charity dedicated solely to the support of patients with thyroid cancer and may be able to help people outside their specific area.

They provide:

  • A dedicated helpline to speak to someone who has had the disease.
  • E-mail and telephone contact with group members to share experiences.
  • A "buddy" to help you through the stages of surgery, Radioiodine treatment and follow up.
  • Hospital visits.
  • Regular support group meetings.
  • Access to reliable up-to-date written information about the disease.
  • Access to a group member in clinic at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care (NCCC), Newcastle General Hospital.
