Merseyside Regional Head and Neck Cancer Centre
How will head or neck cancer affect my life

Head and Neck Cancer Support Group(s)

We are a charitable organisation run by patients and carers based in Merseyside and surrounding areas providing support via support group meetings and online information.

We work closely with the Merseyside Regional Head and Neck Cancer Centre at Aintree University Hospital to give a patient and carers perspective on the research they undertake, to help raise awareness and also fundraise to provide support to others and finance certain research projects.

The HaNC has a very useful and informative website on all aspects of living with Head and Neck Cancer. The website also has inforation and links to other support groups both locally and nationally.
