After much consideration and a great deal of debate, the Trustees have decided close down the Northern Head and Neck Cancer Charity (HANCC). It is not a decision that we have taken lightly and we would like to thank everyone that has helped us along the way.
During the past 10 years, we have met some amazing and inspirational people who have made HANCC what it is. You have enabled us to help so many people, provide specialist equipment, essential financial support, training and research and spread awareness of how to detect the early signs of head and neck cancer and much, much more.
Thank you for being super brave jumping off the Baltic, walking the Sage roof, zipping over the Tyne, sky diving, and running marathons. Pushing yourselves to the limit with our 100-mile bike rides, climbing mountains, swimming lakes, arranging fundraisers and entertaining us. For baking delicious cakes, knitting bears, running raffles, designing our Christmas cards and for buying them. Not forgetting our very first fundraiser the sale of a 32 ft inflatable snowman!
For standing up in front of a room full of people and telling them your stories. To the health professionals who have given up your time to speak at our conferences and for always being there to give us advice.
And to Debora for being Debora.
Going forward any residual funds will be to The Head and Neck Cancer Charity https://www.hncf.org.uk/ & Oracle cancer Trust https://oraclecancertrust.org/
Thank you from Evelyn, Beth and Paula.
The aim of the Charity is to make life better for those diagnosed with head and neck cancer and to heighten awareness of the disease, enabling faster detection and early stage treatment.
Awareness is the key to making a difference
