MEN2B & Me films launched
AMEND’s films series about MEN2B launched today at the 2019 AMEND Annual Patient Information Day in Sheffield.
Young Ethan, aged 13, was diagnosed at age 12 with MEN2B, by which time his medullary thyroid cancer had already spread to his lungs. Find out how Ethan and his family deal with his condition day-to-day in MEN2B & Me: Ethan (1 & 2).
Baby Asher was diagnosed at 6 weeks of age, enabling him to have life-saving surgery to remove his thyroid gland before the cancer inside could spread. However, Asher and his family have other issues to deal with too. Learn about this in MEN2B & Me: Asher.
Kristina is 27 but was diagnosed at age 2. Kristina still suffers with gut problems such as GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and other issues. Find out about how Kristina manages her MEN2B issues in MEN2B & Me: Kristina.
