2nd Annual 5K Run/2 Mile Walk to Support Head & Neck Cancer Patients

  • Print
Description:

Head and Neck Cancer is the sixth most common form of cancer in the world and there will be an estimated 550,000 new cases diagnosed this year. 50,000 new cases in the US this year. 85% of these patients lose their ability to swallow which means they cannot eat or drink by mouth and have to rely on a feeding tube. Imagine how that would impact one’s life. Our awareness walk will not only raise awareness of Head/Neck Cancer here in the community but also raise funds that will stay here locally. Last year we raised close to $21,000 which helps pay for patients rehabilitation needs when patients cannot afford treatment or out of pocket expenses.
