We made it through the week! Thank you so much to everyone for all your support, whether it’s been through words of encouragement, gifts of delicious smoothies, help in the kitchen or donations to Macmillan Cancer Support via our Just Giving page. We’ve absolutely smashed our initial target of £50 and broken through our new target too. Thanks so much for your generosity! You can read more about the work that Macmillan do here.
We hope that our reflections will help other Speech and Language Therapists and students in their work with clients with dysphagia, whether this is within a head and neck cancer setting or with other populations. For those of you less familiar with this area, we hope that our posts have encouraged you to think about the impact that swallowing difficulties can have on people’s lives.
For us it’s been an invaluable learning experience, and we will be taking our new-found knowledge and empathy into our work with our clients in the next few weeks and beyond.
