Risk Factors


About 550,000 cases of head and neck cancers will be diagnosed worldwide this year and we want to make sure people with these cancers have the best treatment options. SU2C has brought together four nonprofits, Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, the American Head and Neck Society and the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance, to fund a research team that will find new treatments for these types of cancers. Learn more about how this research team will work towards making every patient diagnosed with head and neck cancers a long-term survivor. #StandUpToCancer
