Head and Neck Cancer is the 7th most common cancer in Australia. The Central Coast has the 2nd highest rate of Head and Neck cancer in NSW. Unfortunately its severity and high prevalence is largely unknown to the community. Head and Neck cancers affect a person’s appearance, ability to speak, eat and communicate! Therefore we have decided to run this event to both increase awareness of this disease and raise some much needed funds - and we hope you can help out by attending! Beyond Five was the first Australian not-for-profit supporting head and neck cancer patients and carers. It was founded by a team of leading clinicians who saw first-hand the profound impact of head and neck cancer and were passionate about driving change. Their personal commitment to Beyond Five’s vision has resulted in a unique collaboration of patients, family members, carers and clinicians working to educate, support and reduce the cancer burden in some of the most disenfranchised cancer patients. There are a number of Head and Neck Cancer patient support groups here on the Central Coast. Please join us for a night of meeting new people, hearing from a number of speakers, music and food and drink!
