Support Group of head and neck cancer patients

My top 3 facilitators

Community organizations

I believe that by strengthening civil society organizations, we will be able to build a future in which social welfare will be the priority. For this reason, I founded ACBG Brasil, a non-profit organization whose mission is to give voice to the voiceless.

Laws, Policies and Institutions

We mobilize society so that patients and people with head and neck cancer have access to comprehensive and quality treatment, being rehabilitated, included and fully aware of their basic rights. To achieve our mission, we have defined four lines of action: advocacy, inclusion, information and rehabilitation. The Advocacy line is our beating heart, through it we
we seek to intervene in existing public policies to improve them, influencing the drafting of bills, as well as demanding that they be implemented and respected.

Health care and rehabilitative services

A patient with head and neck cancer will eventually need support for speech rehabilitation and swallowing. It is an adaptation to your new life condition through access to specialized speech therapy. There is an urgent need for access to oral and / or speech prostheses, as well as feeding probes in certain cases. The rehabilitation of patients is essential because they need to re-socialize with other communication alternatives to resume their professional activities and not feel excluded from society.
