Meeting the Challenges of Oral and Head and Neck Cancer free pdf ***Second edition includes five new chapters!*** "This volume has been expanded, updated, and polished and thus constitutes an even more comprehensive resource of valuable scientific, psychological, sociological, therapeutic, financial, and practical information for the patient afflicted with head and neck cancer and his or her family1000. Appreciation of these principles [in this book] and others too numerous to mention will soften the impact of the cancer and facilitate the care of, as well as the caring for, the patient afflicted with head and neck cancer." - From the foreword by Elliot W. Strong, M.D., F.A.C.S, Emeritus, Memorial Hospital for Cancer and Allied Disease, Emeritus, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Former Attending Surgeon and Chief, Head and Neck Service, Former Professor of Surgery, Cornell University, Medical College. While the prevalence of head and neck cancers is relatively low, the impact of the disease on sufferers is great - including aesthetics as well as speech, smell, hearing, sight, and swallowing problems. Meeting the Challenges of Oral and Head and Neck Cancer: A Survivor's Guide, now in its second edition, is a popular and useful guide to help those with head and neck cancer and those who care for them. For the second edition, the text has been extensively rewritten, updated, and expanded to include five new chapters. What began as an idea for bringing practical information to oral and head and neck cancer survivors in a reader-friendly format has now turned into something of an institution, or even a community in its own right, with many survivors, family members, and healthcare professionals offering suggestions and input to the content, resources, and tables. Aside from offering advice on a host of topics - including meeting the challenges of chemo, swallowing issues, surgeries, and more - the authors provide guidance on health insurance and recommend commercial products for issues ranging from oral hygiene to skin care. Also included is a comprehensive list of publications, websites, and other information sources, including support groups, medical associations, and more. Concise, practical, and packed with information, Meeting the Challenges of Oral and Head and Neck Cancer: A Guide for Survivors and Caregivers, Second Edition is a valuable resource to assist those who need help overcoming the many difficult issues that confront them or their loved ones struggling with oral or head and neck cancer.

About Nancy E. Leupold

Nancy E. Leupold is the President and Founder of Support for People with Oral and Head and Neck Cancer, Inc. (SPOHNC), a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and meeting the needs of oral and head and neck cancer patients, their families, and friends. An oral cancer survivor herself, Leupold experienced many of the same difficulties as other oral and head and neck cancer patients and looked for a self-help group where she could find support and information. However, no such group existed. Consequently, with the encouragement of her surgeon, Dr. David Wolk and his colleague, Dr. James J. Sciubba, she founded SPOHNC. Now more than seventeen years later, SPOHNC has more than sixty-five chapters throughout the United States offering information, support, and encouragement to oral and head and neck cancer patients. Dr. Sciubba has served as a full Professor in the Departments of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Pathology and Dermatology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He has over thirty-five years of experience with oral and head and neck cancer patients as a clinician and has published extensively in the areas of oral cancer, oral and salivary gland diseases, and jawbone pathology. He is currently in part-time private practice in Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology in the Baltimore community and is an active consultant at the Milton J. Dance Head and Neck Cancer Center located at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, where a very active program exists in the comprehensive management and rehabilitation of oral and head and neck cancer patients. Dr. Sciubba is presently Vice President of Support for People with Oral and Head and Neck Cancer (SPOHNC) and was instrumental in the founding of this organization in 1991.
