The Victorian

Head & Neck Cancer

Education and Support Group

The aim of this education and support group is to provide information and support for those affected by Head and Neck Cancer.

Guest speakers will be invited to discuss a relevant topic, and share stories & tips from other people going through similar experiences.

In July and October of this year,  two community events were held to connect with 136 patients, carers, family members and healthcare professionals.

 

The support group partners with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to help support the group going forward, and to provide a location to host the meetings in the Wellbeing Centre.

The formation of this group has been led by the Western Central Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS), following a gap identified in the support available to those affected by Head and Neck Cancer.
