Thymus Awareness Bands and Pins


Requested by popular demand, we will soon be making available official Foundation and ITMIG awareness ribbons. Using the same color scheme as our wristbands, the ribbons include a pin ready to attach to clothing. The ribbons proudly say Thymic Cancer Awareness. Check back soon.


So many people aren’t even aware we have a thymus, let alone how it can wreck havoc in our lives. And while you all might not be thinking too kindly of your thymus right now, the little thing did play a part in building our immune systems.

To bring recognition to our small numbers and maybe make more people “thymus-aware”, here’s a chance to wear a thymus support wristband or pin. Certainly a unique and conversation-provoking wardrobe item.

The wristbands come in one size. They are available for a donation to help cover their cost and shipping:  at least $2.50 for a single band, $10 for a set of five. This includes postage in the U. S. Colors are lavender and orange.  To order wristbands for delivery outside of the United States, please email us at so we can determine the best shipping method and cost.

The pins, including postage to the U. S. are:

1 pin     $12

2 pins  $18

3 pins  $23

4 pins  $28

5 pins  $34

For additional quantities, or for shipping outside of the U.S., please email

All donations are tax deductible to the Foundation for Thymic Cancer Research..
