Targeting Cancer

 

Julie has become an Ambassador for Targeting Cancer. She had oropharyngeal cancer treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy in 2013, and is now back to her usual busy life.

Over 100,000 Australians are diagnosed with cancer each year. In 2010, 21,235 cancers were registered in New Zealand. It is estimated that about half of them will benefit from radiation therapy as part of their overall cancer treatment.

The inaugural Head and Neck Cancer Patient, Carer and Team Forum will take place in Sydney at St Vincent’s Hospital on Friday June 12, 2020.

I am very excited to be working with patient advocate Julie McCrossin to convene this forum. It is a unique opportunity for head and neck cancer patients, carers and treating professionals from Australia and New Zealand to learn from one another about “Living Well Before, During and After Treatment”.

Julie and I are bringing together patients, family members, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, dentists, allied health practitioners, GPs, volunteers, surgeons, nurses, researchers, cancer care coordinators, psychologists and social workers to share examples of the good work being done to improve the lives of people affected by head and neck cancer.

I want to encourage fellow head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists to attend the forum. Listening to patients outside the consulting room is a rare but valuable opportunity. Over the past few years I have learned a lot from Julie and made a number of changes to my practice in response to her suggestions. As a surgical oncologist it is easy to forget that I am an expert in treating head and neck cancer but not in living with head and neck cancer.
