Not all superheroes wear capes, some have pegs, tracheas, no teeth, no saliva glands, eyes or even a nose, these are just some of the Head and Neck Cancer Heroes that make up our team! Cancer Heroes specialises in the Head and Neck Cancer, a number of malignant tumours that develop in or around the throat, larynx, nose, sinuses, and mouth. We want people to know that being a Cancer Hero can mean a patient, a family member, a nurse, a doctor, a caregiver, or a donor that generously gives time or resources to help cancer patients and their loved ones during their cancer journey! This was the dream of our dear friends Robinson, Ian Lucas, Angelo Haggiyannes and many others that have gone before them.
Our vision is put into actionable programs, with a focus on stewardship initiatives for all aspects of the South African ever increasing Cancer incidents, while creating activities to benefit society as a whole. All these associations will be entered into to explore alternative methods of promoting its objectives, attempting wherever possible to include as many individuals requiring assistance, especially the poor and needy and medically disenfranchised.
