New Head and Neck Cancer Support Group starts April 27

The head and neck cancer team at Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute will host the inaugural Head and Neck Cancer Support Group from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 27, at the University Conference Center, Room 302A, on the Penn State Hershey campus.

Head and neck surgeon Dr. Genevieve Andrews will discuss “Head and Neck Cancer 101,” and patients will share stories about living with or treating head and neck cancer. The team’s goal is to build a group that allows head and neck cancer patients at the Cancer Institute, as well as their family members, to develop connections with and receive support from other patients and caregivers.

Anyone interested in attending should RSVP to Betty Cek, clinical nurse coordinator, at bcek@hmc.psu.edu, with the number of people attending.
