Head & Neck Cancer Support Group

We appreciate your interest in our Head and Neck Cancer Support Group! The Foundation has been established to promote education, research, and advocacy. We also care about your health and well-being as you navigate this cancer journey. The support group meets bi-monthly with in-person and zoom opportunities. Each meeting is led by a nurse practitioner and supported by an experienced provider in their specialty to help address common concerns. Cancer survivors and newly diagnosed patients are all welcome and supportive discussion is encouraged.

If you have any questions, please complete the sign up or email Julie at [email protected].

Head & Neck Cancer Support Group

Ask the experts. We can all relate to some aspect of their journey – the fears, the recovery, the
changes. They are here for you!

A first-time speaker, Leslie works with patients to improve strength, mobility, and reduce pain after surgery. She is excited to share her knowledge and answer your questions!

So much information on methods to reduce dry mouth and improve oral hygiene, I had to have her back! She is a fountain of amazing information!

Our chance to discuss any topics of interest. Learn about cancer updates and initiatives, resources, with open dialogue and understanding. We are here for each other!
