Cancer Focus NI - Laryngectomy Support

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they may experience feelings of shock, anger, or confusion. Even the most supportive family members, friends, or employers cannot understand exactly how it feels to go through a cancer journey. A cancer support group is one way for individuals to interact with other people in similar circumstances.

What to expect?

A safe and welcoming space for people to get to know each other and get the support they need. Meetings are social and informative and designed to provide peer support as well as up to date information and current good practice for people who have undergone a laryngectomy.

Support provided:

  • Peer encouragement
  • Reduction in social isolation
  • Information about cancer services and treatment
  • Fun and friendship

About the service

This support group is run by a Cancer Nurse specialist in Head and Throat cancer and an experienced Cancer Focus NI facilitator. The support group meets in person four times per year and is often delivered from the charity’s head office or other locations in the greater Belfast area.
