You Can Help Make a Difference

Help others who are struggling financially while undergoing head and neck cancer treatment or recovering from this devastating disease. It is a heartwarming way to memorialize, honor, and celebrate the life of a loved one.

Your contributions directly support individuals and families and the day-to-day challenges that they experience in their fight with head and neck cancer. The funds we receive are vital to our efforts, and help us continue the fight. For those who have lost their jobs, funds from 911 4 HNC replace that lost income. For others, this financial assistance provides taxi fare to the hospital, weekly groceries, or necessary medical care for long-term effects of the disease. It is so important for these individuals to know they are not alone, that a whole community is available to them and wants to help.

“Lying supine, the technician uses my mask to bolt me to the treatment table.
After he leaves the room, I feel alone, and at first, afraid.
I see and hear the radiation machine move around me, but feel nothing.
After 2 weeks of this, the skin on my neck and the inside of my mouth becomes red, sore, and dry.
My sense of taste changes, it becomes difficult to eat.
By the end, the technician has become my trusted friend,
I cannot predict the future, but I feel less afraid, my Courage Unmasked.”
