Gold Bow Day
The two loops of the ATF Gold Bow symbolise the Thyroid Gland, one on either side of the neck. The Gold colour symbolises that your Thyroid Gland is more valuable to you than Gold!
The ATF Gold Bow Day highlights the increase in Thyroid Cancer, with the most recent research from 2008 stating, thyroid cancer had increased by 84% in women and 40% in men over the previous 10 years. The ATF Know Your Neck - Check Your Thyroid highlights the importance of being aware of the increase in Thyroid Cancer.
If you have a family history of thyroid disorders, you have a stubborn cough or feel tightening or pain around your neck - Consult your doctor and have an examination of your thyroid gland and if there are any concerns, a thyroid ultrasound examination should be requested.
