As we approach Head and Neck Cancer Awareness month in April, it is with great excitement that we announce our application for the Minneapolis St. Anthony Falls Bridge lighting has been accepted! This means that on Sunday, April 4th from sunset to sunrise the bridge will be bathed in burgundy to represent Head and Neck Cancer Awareness. It should be a pretty spectacular sight!
Our Head & Neck Cancer Foundation was established in 2020 to help our patients, community, dental and medical specialties with issues related to Head and Neck Cancer through philanthropic efforts.
Annually head and neck cancer will affect over 550,000 people worldwide and over 65,000 people in the US. It is our hope that our Foundation will increase awareness and improve education for patients with head and neck cancer in Minnesota.
Now in existence for a year, our organization continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting our cause. Our mission is to “save lives through education, research, and advocacy.” We have created a dedicated foundation advisory board, started an educational symposium, and established a patient support group. We have an ambitious future agenda to engage community leaders and organizations to raise awareness for head and neck cancer.
In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for financial support and partnerships that allow us to reach a wider audience. Without the assistance of community-minded and socially responsible individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to serve those in our community each year. We ask that you consider a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a modest financial donation. We are also looking for organizational platforms to help us educate our community on the importance of early detection and screening for head and neck cancer. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue this important work…. that will save lives.
Thank you in advance for your support! If you want to learn more or offer a donation, please visit our Head and Neck Foundation page located HERE.
