Team Head and Neck Cancer

Your Hospital

We're fundraising for...

‘Most people have not heard of cancers of the head and neck. As a senior Radiation Oncologist, I see the enormous impact that both the cancers and their treatment can have on patients and their loved ones every day. It is a particularly difficult cancer to treat and the side effects such difficulty with speech, or the loss of the ability to eat, drink and taste can be devastating.

Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) sees more than 900 people a year with cancers in the head and neck region. It can affect any one of us, and our patients are getting younger.’

Prof Liz Kenny AO

Head and Neck Cancer refers to those cancers that occur inside the sinuses, nose, mouth and salivary glands down through he throat. Although these cancers are different, they are treated similarly, so are considered as a group.

Your donations on Royal Giving Day will be matched by Irene and Reinhard.
