Other Oropharyngeal Cancer Blogs, Sites, and Resources

Like everyone out there that’s faced with cancer, I’ve headed to the Internet for information. When I first started writing this I was surprised to see that many people were getting different treatments. I soon realised that this wasn’t just because they presented with different personal conditions, but that they were being treated in different years and in different locations. Technologies and techniques change over time, and recommended protocols and service offerings differ between countries and regions. It takes a while to find sites and blogs that present information that is truly relevant to one’s personal situation.

Thanks to all of those who take the time to build sites that present information that describes accurately what activities are planned or happening, where the activities are happening, and when they are happening.
