SUPPORT SPOHNC

We are happy to support SPOHNC in any way we can. You have been a life saver to a lot of people.”
- The Bielman'sAmy and Lewis Beilman can attest to that.

When Lewis was diagnosed with throat cancer their very good friend found SPOHNC. At that time, there were no chapters within 100 miles of their home, so they reached out to SPOHNC’s National Survivor Volunteer Network. They were matched with survivors around the country who had similar experiences…dry mouth, feeding tube questions, sores in the mouth, not being able to lay flat without gagging, the mucous, and on and on. Both were very grateful to find an organization that was so supportive to each of them.

Amy told Lewis “if we come out of this cancer free, we are going to give back and start a local chapter in Palm Coast, FL.”

Today the Bielman’s have a thriving group of survivors and caregivers who support one another through thick and thin. Your support now, more than ever, is critical. Your generosity has brought us such a great distance since 1991.

Please help to continue SPOHNC’s strong history of patient support by making a contribution today to our Annual Appeal!

 

WILL YOU WALK IN OUR SHOES?

Our shoes are ragged and worn. Please help to repair them and bring them back by giving a donation of $25.00 or more to help us once again publish We Have Walked in Your Shoes, A Guide to Living with Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer - a much needed resource for oral, head and neck cancer patients. For many years SPOHNC had been able to supply this wonderful Resource Guide to newly diagnosed patients, their families, friends, clinics, hospitals, diagnostic centers, and cancer institutions.


Let’s not leave anyone behind ~ We need everyone’s support in order to bring back We Have Walked In Your Shoes, A Guide to Living with Oral, Head and Neck Cancer. We can only meet this challenge with your support. Please consider a gift today.
Click here to give.

AWARENESS EVENTS

Niagara Falls was lit in SPOHNC's colors of burgundy and ivory to promote Awareness of Oral, Head and Neck Cancer. It was amazing!  


Thank you to the Chapters who participated in doing Awareness Events this year. Look for photo's and stories coming soon!
