I pledge to hold a Thyroid Cafe on Graves Disease and Hyperthyroidism on Wednesday 25th May for ITAW. I want to provide a safe forum where people with Graves Disease can talk to others and share their experience with Graves Disease #TalkThyroid

I'm going to hold a thyroid friends walk and picnic in Broadstairs on the Kent coast on 25th May, World Thyroid Day and I might even dress up as a giant butterfly again! Because the thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland which should be much more widely talked about and better understood. I'll also make this event a fundraiser for The Thyroid Trust

During Thyroid awareness week, I will post a note in my local parents and neighbourhood groups to invite people with, or supporting a friend or family member with, thyroid disease to meet for talking and walking in a nearby park.

To write how a typical thyroid day feels for me and share this on social media for friends and family to read, and perhaps understand.

To share all that I have learnt. To continue to advocate for the health of others and myself. To remove any stigma attached to discussing hormones that are just our natural building blocks. To educate the professionals so they can do better by us.
