Advice from Survivors to Patients with Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer

The attached 21-page document was written and produced by an NFOSD community member, Art Lazarus, who is a head and neck cancer survivor, along with other cancer survivors from his support group, who wanted to provide support to others facing similar challenges that they have experienced.

The document, titled, “Advice from Survivors to Patients with Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer: We’ve Been There,” provides information on a variety of topics including eating, maintaining oral hygiene, sleeping, and socialization, for patients diagnosed with oral, head, and neck cancers. It includes details explaining the symptoms they were experiencing leading up to their diagnosis, and the symptoms they are experiencing post-treatment.  It includes fantastic diet and nutrition ideas and resources for support.

This document was not produced by medical professionals and is for informational purposes only. This should not be used as a substitute for consultation with an appropriate health care professional, as each individual’s medical situation is unique. It is important that you consult with your medical professional (e.g., physician, SLP) before implementing any course of treatment. Experiences that are new to you should be done with the help of a caregiver and when access to emergency medical care is available.
