Marty's Journey

Inside UPMC's Head & Neck Cancer Survivorship Clinic (Preview)

As we move along in my journey passed HPV-related cancer, I'm getting a better hold on the recovery process. This place takes you through everything you need to know along the way.


As we move along in my journey passed HPV-related cancer, I'm getting a better hold on the recovery process. This place takes you through everything you need to know along the way.

This is the UPMC Head & Neck Cancer Survivorship Clinic .

This is where you'll find my latest video that will take you through my process so you can see what many others go through every day. The struggle is real and these people are here to help make it a little easier.

In the meantime here are a few pictures from my visit:

(Photo above: testing my hearing)

(Photo above: measuring the opening of my mouth. Things have been much tighter as a result of my treatments)

(Photo above: the doc takes a closer look at my mouth, tongue, and throat)

(Photo above: A dentist takes a look at the condition of my teeth and salivation)

My team is working on a series of videos that will show you more of today's adventure and how it can help others going through similar issues.
