From June-September 2018, HNCA participated in the Ready. Raise. Rise. Pic Your Power challenge. We asked you to visit DiscoverIO on Facebook and share a photo showing how you harness your unique inner power to rise up against cancer. Bristol-Myers Squibb pledged to donate $250,000 to be split evenly across participating cancer advocacy groups, like HNCA, if we could upload 100 images. And we did it! Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge. Together, we met the goal and helped provide donations to patient advocacy organizations, including HNCA.
I believe that my success as a cancer patient is first due to the process of recognition on a basic level, that something in my body was not the same as it was and I was worse off.Jessica Tar National Spokesperson for HNCA & squamous cell carcinoma survivor
