There are more than 17,000 people living in Australia with head and neck cancer and nearly 5,000 people are newly diagnosed with head and neck cancer each year.
Head and neck cancer affects a person’s identity unlike any other cancer. While many people survive the disease, the cancer can strip away a person’s voice, distort the face and rob the basic abilities to eat, drink and swallow.
Beyond Five currently receives no government funding and relies on public donations and corporate support to fund our activities.
Your donation helps us provide education and support to everyone affected by head and neck cancer in communities right across Australia, making life for families experiencing head and neck cancer that little bit easier.
