The Florida is the newest chapter to join the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance. Based in Jacksonville, the Florida HNCA chapter has a diverse group of member volunteers. Their backgrounds range from health care, military, business owners, and, most importantly, survivors and family members of head and neck cancer. Together, they have been active in organizing various community efforts to provide support and education for various oral, head and neck cancers.
The Florida chapter and its affiliates have participated in the annual Oral Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week® (OHANCAW®) for the past three years. In addition to local community efforts during OHANCAW®, Florida HNCA members are continuously active in various community outreach programs reaching out to children and adults in hope to educate and raise awareness.
