World head and neck cancer day

RNSH clinicians and staff came together to help raise awareness about head and neck cancer by holding a Weetbix challenge in the main foyer of the hospital.

Patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancer often develop dry mouth - a sensation often described as eating dry Weetbix.

Representatives from various departments across the hospital were there to answer questions from staff, patients and visitors.

Did you know there are more than 17,000 Australians with head and neck cancer? Each year nearly 5000 people are newly diagnosed.
