Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week® Expands Globally
HNCA continues to grow and expand its annual Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week® (OHANCAW®). The number of international sites participating nearly doubled in 2017, and more than 350 screenings took place throughout the U.S.
"Early detection means everything with head and neck cancers. Before my 29 year old husband was diagnosed with tongue cancer I believed head and neck cancer was an older person's or smokers disease. Now I know anyone can get it."
"I believe that my success as a cancer patient is first due to the process of recognition on a basic level, that something in my body was not the same as it was and I was worse off."
Jessica Tar, National Spokesperson for the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance
