THANCS is a local support group and network for patients and staff that was set up in late 2011. It is open to anyone who has undergone or is undergoing treatment for Head or Neck Cancer. Family and friends are also warmly welcomed to attend our usually very friendly, informative and informal meetings. You will find this is the place to find many new friends. The THANCS group was run by a multidisciplinary team(Jo Kerr & Pat Shields) from within the Sussex Cancer Centre,since March 2017 following the retirement of Pat and Jo moving jobs the group has been run by volunteers from the group. We continue to run meetings, social and fundraising events, and are always open to new ideas and ways to bring support. We hope you will find the information interesting and useful, if you need help do not hesitate to contact the group via website link. THANCS is designed for you, whether it be as a patient, carer, or someone you know that may require some kind of support, please let us know.
