There are more than 17,000 people living in Australia with head and neck cancer and nearly 5,000 people are newly diagnosed with head and neck cancer each year.
Head and neck cancer affects a person's identity unlike any other cancer. It’s a cancer that you see in the mirror. It’s a cancer that you see in the behaviour of the person sitting next to you on the bus. While many people survive the disease, the cancer can strip away a person's voice, distort the face and rob the basic abilities to eat, drink and swallow.
We rely heavily on donations from the
community to provide:
- vital support for people affected by head and neck cancers
- education programs in the community
- investment for head and neck cancer research.
All donations above $2 are tax deductible.
