2022 Christmas Appeal: Help us hold our heads high
It’s time we faced the facts. Head and Neck Cancer is unlike any other cancer.


For people diagnosed with Head and Neck Cancer, the end of treatment doesn’t mean their journey is over, for many it is just the beginning of a new normal.

It’s time we faced the facts. Head and Neck Cancer is unlike any other cancer.

The treatment can be brutal.

"It is a cancer that you see in the mirror."  "You see it in the face of the person sitting next to you."

It affects a person’s ability to: SPEAK, EAT, DRINK, SWALLOW and BREATHE.

Over 17,000 Australians are living with the side effects of treatment that can last a lifetime.

"It has a massive impact on your mental health."  "And how you look."

Head and Neck Cancer Australia advocates for early diagnosis and prevention, however, our advocacy doesn’t stop there. We need your help to ensure the voices of people living with the devastating impact of treatment for Head and Neck Cancer are heard.

Head and Neck Cancer is one of the least supported cancers in Australia.

Will you help us with your generous donation today?

We are working hard to achieve better outcomes and improved quality of life for all people living with Head and Neck Cancer in Australia. But we can’t do it without your support. 

We need your help to advocate for funding to be prioritised on the national agenda to support people who are cured but living with the long-term consequences of Head and Neck Cancer treatment, including for dental care.

Your donation today will help us raise the voices of people 
living with Head and Neck Cancer. 

Together, we can make a difference.

Your donation, no matter the size, has the power to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people impacted by Head and Neck Cancer. Together, we can make a difference.

Thank you for your support and generosity.
