suzieq10279, I don't see why not. I think when you register your name you can note that another person will be attending. When I went to see my endocrinologist in October he showed me the flyer about the conference and said that if I knew of anyone who may be interested to pass the information along. Maybe you could make sure by contacting Marylin Armento, her address is right above.

Hi Susieq, Like @mariagiusi said, you can register multiple people when you click the signup button. People are encouraged to bring a family member, caregiver or friend. Two set of ears means double the memory and you can discuss the conference afterwards. I'm wondering how old your daughter is. If she is a child, then I might consider contacting Marilyn Armento.Marilyn@mayo.edu It could be a long day for a child.

Maria, are you planning to attend the conference?

I was diagnosed in 1996 with papillary/follicular thyroid cancer had two radiation iodine treatments and now I am in remission, I have nodules in my neck too small to biopsy, so I have ultrasound and bloodwork every year for my follow up. And I’m looking forward to meet other cancer patience and survivors💜😊

I just had my fifth surgery Dec 6th. They removed my lung lady year. I have chondrosarcoma. It is a very rare none cancer. It creates cancer cells in my bones and throws it wherever it likes. Never smoked. I now have seven tumors in my left lung. We will keep watch on those. They are too deep right now to do surgery. I am thankful fir every day that I have. My motto is every day thankful. Life is a gift and I will enjoy each day that I have. I pray that you will overcome your cancer. God bless
