Headstart, a support group for Head and Neck Cancer patients in Kent and Sussex.


Headstart cancer charity

Ho-Ho-Ho time


We had a brilliant sparkly Christmas bash for our final

event in the Kent Oncology Centre.

Lots and lots of our fab supporters turned up to share in with

the fun and enjoy the very festive atmosphere.

Some in deep discussion, others are somewhat baffled by the quiz.

Then the raffle tickets are been sold, you can maybe just

see quite a few prizes in the top right of the picture.

How about a few more smiley people!!



The best news was that our lovely Sheila (in the picture above these

on the right holding the raffle ticket books) was back at

Headstart after yet more treatment over the last few months.

She is a fighter and it's just great to see her here again.



That's about it for now. As always there is plenty of info on our

other web pages. If you would like to include something on

the website, just email headstartnews@gmail.com

and we'll see what we can do.


Our first event of 2018 will be on,

Saturday 17th February in the Post Grad Centre

Medway Maritime Hospital at 10am as usual.

The dates for 2018 are here for you to view, print or download.



The raffle helps to pay for all the wonderful refreshments

so abundantly available. We are thinking of introducing

some participation from you all. As you know home baked

cakes and biscuits are just the best, if you like to bring something

along to the next meeting that would be wonderful. There are

never any left-overs as this is taken to the wards for patients.



Our most recent pictures from 28/10.16 until 16.09.17 are

If this is the first time you have visited the Headstart website, then

we'd like to extend a very warm Welcome to you. This is the most 

friendly support group you could wish for.

On the surface this might seem like a jolly nice gathering,

which it is of course with tea and coffee and cake,

but Headstart also plays a vital role in the care for Head & Neck

cancer patients in Kent & Sussex to ensure they receive

the best possible care available.

We are so lucky here to have in this region,

the most amazing professional team

you could ever wish to have. Check them out here.


Donations to Headstart have made it possible to buy important

medical equipment to ensure that patients receive the

best possible treatment they can have.

Please send your contributions to;

Debbie Hannant,

Richard Watts Unit, Medway Maritime Hospital, Windmill Road, Gillingham, KENT

          Unfortunately, Headstart does not qualify for Gift Aid donations.



HEADSTART is the success it is because of the wonderful

dedication from our caring professional nursing staff. They

give up so much of their own free time to ensure

that HEADSTART makes a difference to so many people.

Huge thanks to Pauline Mortimer, Debbie Hannant and Jayne Goddard.
