The 2018 Second Edition of the Australian Head and Neck Cancer Patient & Carers Book was launched in July 2018 at the Australian and New Zealand Head and Neck Cancer Conference in Melbourne.

The book is a patient led initiative coordinated by former patient and Beyond Five Ambassador, Julie McCrossin, and fellow former patient Marty Doyle coordinator of the Head and Neck Cancer Support Group in Queensland.

The book shares many personal head and neck cancer stories from patients, family and carers from all over Australia and New Zealand. In addition, the book highlights some of the people who work in the head and neck multidisciplinary team who talk about  important aspects of care at specific points in the head and neck cancer journey.

The book was inspired by The Swallows, a UK head and neck cancer support group who launched their first patient and carers book in 2017.
