Description

Support for People with Oral and Head and Neck Cancer, Inc. is a national, non-profit organization which offers information, support and encouragement to oral and head and neck cancer patients. There are presently 100 chapters of SPOHNC nationwide. SPOHNC responds to mail, telephone and electronic inquiries. SPOHNC’s “National Survivors Volunteer Network” has been serving patients, caregivers and their families since 2004, bringing them the opportunity to share diagnosis and treatment experiences with “someone who has walked in their shoes.” The network consists of volunteers who have had oral and head and neck cancer. This unique matching service pairs volunteers who have gone through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery with patients or family members who are just beginning their journey, or now recovering from side effects of cancer or its treatment.
