Local Charity Puts Activities Under the Spotlight

By Published July 11, 2019

HEAD and neck cancer is not a pleasant subject, but 33 people a day in the UK have to face up to the diagnosis. 

Early detection and treatment are crucial to survival and can help avoid disability and disfigurement from surgery and radiotherapy to the face, mouth and neck.

A local cancer charity which raises awareness of these cancers is putting its activities and plans under the spotlight at a special event later this month.

The Look A Head Cancer Campaign, is hosting a buffet supper and presentation at the Acklam Green Centre, Middlesbrough on Friday, July 19.

They will highlight recent successes and future plans. Special guests will be entertainers Wett ‘n' Wilde, who are holding their third variety performance in aid of the Head and Neck Cancer Unit at The James Cook University Hospital on October 6 at Whitby Pavilion.

Head and neck cancer is a particular issue for the north-east of England and several former patients will be attending to give their views on the way forward.
