Our Vision

Though continued and ongoing medical, research and advocacy advancements in Canada, Head and Neck Cancer will be less common, detected earlier and treated definitively with minimal side-effects of therapy.

MANUARY CANADA

Little is spoken about head and neck cancer in the media, however it is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. Although historically linked to tobacco and alcohol use, there are new found associations with human papillomavirus (HPV). Indeed head and neck cancers caused by HPV are dramatically on the rise, making it one of the fastest growing cancers.

Head and neck cancers, as well as their treatment can have a profound negative impact on patient quality of life, as facial appearance, voice, breathing and swallowing can all be compromised.

Survival with contemporary treatment consisting of a combination of radiation, surgery and/or chemotherapy can be successful, however up to 50% of patients with advanced cancers unfortunately succumb to disease.

Manuary™ is dedicated to raising funds to supporting cutting edge research and improving clinical care for patients suffering with head and neck cancer. The ultimate goal is improve cure rates and quality of life for patients suffering with this disease.
