If you are new to our website, and recently diagnosed, or in the middle, just finished

your treatment for Head & Neck Cancer, HEADSTART might be just the

very sort of support you might be looking for.

We meet every two months or so in Medway, Maidstone,

and Queen Victoria (in East Grinstead) hospital to enjoy a cuppa, along with some lovely

home made cake, and lots of other delightful nibbles.

There's plenty of fun with our raffe and quiz, which seems to get some people quite excited.
