Head and Neck Cancer
For some good information on this type of cancer, visit the website for the National Cancer Institute
Head and neck cancers are cancers that start in the tissues and organs of the head and neck. They include cancers of the larynx (voice box), throat, lips, mouth, nose, and salivary glands.
Number of New Cases and Deaths per 100,000: The number of new cases of oral cavity and pharynx cancer was 11.2 per 100,000 men and women per year. The number of deaths was 2.5 per 100,000 men and women per year. These rates are age-adjusted and based on 2010-2014 cases and deaths.
I have created a miniature awareness ribbon from tiny Delica glass beads – with burgundy beads in the center, and one tip in alabaster ivory – the colors for Head and Neck Cancer. It is bordered in white for the hope that is always there!
The ribbon measures just about one inch tall, and is suspended on an 18″ silver-dipped chain, which closes with a lobster clasp
