On the first Saturday morning of every month, HNC patients and survivors gather, chat, share personal stories/experiences and gather helpful information from others. They are of different ages, gender and race, and accompanied by family, caregivers, and/or friends. But they all have one thing in common – they or a family member have been diagnosed with Head & Neck Cancer (HNC). They are here to participate in the Head & Neck Patient Support Group at USC, to encourage and to be encouraged.
Additionally, many individuals from diverse medical and healing disciplines have taken time from their hectic schedules to join in. Doctor, Nurse, Speech Therapist, Dietitian, Journalist, Medical Office Specialist, Yoga Therapist, Research Scientist, Art Therapist, Medical Supply Vendor, Pharmacist, and Professor are just some of the “titles” that have joined our meetings as active participants.
