Re: [MOL] - thyroid...



Charlotte, thanks for sharing your thyroid story.  We just can't educate
people enough on the importance of the functions of this gland and how it
effects the total body system.  It isn't just chemo, or radiation that can
affect the thyroid, adjunct therapy (Harmone) can also. Along with many
other drugs; etc.  Your friend, lillian


We invite you to take a look at our Album.

  ( Very informational, good tips, Molers pictures, art work and much
more....
