As a decade-long survivor of stage IV tongue cancer and Founder of WesternOhio Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Support, Hank refers to head and neck cancer as an “orphan” cancer: "Very little is known about head and neck cancer, and comparatively, it receives less attention than other cancers. HNCA is working to change this."Hank Deneski
