your treatment for Head & Neck Cancer, HEADSTART might be just the very kind of support

you might just be looking for. We meet every 2 months or so in Medway, Maidstone

and Queen Victoria hospitals to enjoy a cuppa, some lovely home made cake,

and have fun with quiz and a raffle.

Details of meetings are on nearly every page of the website, or you can email us directly at

headstartnews@gmail.com or download our database form to sign up news of events.

HEADSTART will never disclose your details to third parties.
