Welcome to our brand-new Patients’ Guide, written by patients and experts with head and neck cancer Patients and Carers at the heart of our publication.
Nothing can possibly prepare you for being told those words ‘I’m very sorry to say you have Cancer’.
There was no book that you could buy that would prepare me for what I would experience. I wish there had been. I now realise that my feelings at the time were perfectly normal and are common amongst cancer patients. Having a source of reference following my diagnosis would have been invaluable to me both emotionally and practically, and I welcome the publication of this handbook and hope that future patients find it useful and informative as they embark on their own cancer journey.
We hope all Patients and Carers find this handbook a useful resource.
