Windy Sherman beat cancer twice! In 2009 she won the fight with breast cancer and after 6 years, in August 2015, Windy had to face another battle with breast cancer but this time it was stage 4. When she found out about the diagnoses her goal was one, “I'm gonna fight this, I'm gonna beat this and whatever is gonna happen I'm not gonna go down without a fight!" Today, she is a cancer survivor.

What Causes Head and Neck Cancers ?

According to the study published by Drs. Groves, Cui, and Byrd, "The classic causative factors for 80% of HNSCCs are heavy tobacco usage and/or excessive alcohol consumption. Due to a recent, substantial increase in human papillomavirus (HPV) infections in the Western world with a specific rise in the prevalence of HPV-positive oropharyngeal tumors in non-smokers, HPV-infection has emerged as another carcinogenic factor of HNSCCs."
