The health, safety and wellbeing of our members is very important to us.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our support group meetings will be
online until further notice.

Head and Neck Cancer includes more than 10 different cancers located in a person’s mouth, tongue, salivary glands, skin or voice box.
Our aim is to provide information and support for those affected by Head and Neck Cancer.
We invite a guest speaker to discuss a relevant topic, and share stories & tips from other people going through similar experiences.
In July and October 2019, we held two community events to connect with 136 patients, carers, family members and healthcare professionals.
We have partnered with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to help support the group going forward, and to provide a location to host the meetings in the Wellbeing Centre.
The formation of this group has been led by the Western Central Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS), following a gap identified in the support available to those affected by Head and Neck Cancer.
