Head and Neck Cancer Australia launches its Giving Circle to fund a national Head and Neck Cancer Helpline
Since HANCA launched in 2016 we have engaged and collaborated with the growing community of people across Australia who are impacted by Head and Neck Cancer. The common theme in all conversations is that people living with Head and Neck Cancer require ongoing expert support from the time of diagnosis to managing the long-term side effects and complications of treatment, particularly once the acute phase of treatment ends.
In response to feedback from patients, carers and healthcare professionals and the growing demand from people contacting HANCA for support, our goal is to raise enough funds to pilot Australia’s First Head and Neck Cancer Helpline.
The Head and Neck Cancer Helpline will give Head and Neck Cancer patients, their family and the people who care for them, access to a Head and Neck Cancer Specialist Navigator with expertise in providing information, practical and emotional support and connections to peer support to alleviate feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression and social isolation.
Australia needs a Head and Neck Cancer helpline. Please help us make it happen!
