HNCA Stands in Solidarity with the Asian American Community Against Racism

The Head & Neck Cancer Alliance grieves the recent deaths of the eight people killed in Atlanta. We join our colleagues across the nation to stand in solidarity against anti-Asian racism. While racism targeted against Asians and Asian Americans is not new to our country, the rising surge of violence and the recent hate crimes result are deeply concerning and something that we will actively raise our voices against. As advocates for head and neck cancer patients, we resolve to work against the pervasive racism that undergirds health disparities and that creates a climate of fear for people in their everyday lives.

I remain optimistic and use my humor as a tool for survival. I’ve lost approximately 45 pounds through this journey, and I had the weight to lose, but I tell people I wouldn’t recommend the cancer diet!Gail Jackson
