Why should I pay for an email ?

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.

A paid subscription means you believe & support the hours of research and the lived communication from someone who’s had head & neck cancer. A kindred spirit as it were for creating a better food life for patients world wide through commentary for multidisciplinary teams & clinicians about our food life reality.

The vernacular of head and neck cancer treatment (HNC).


When you have gone through treatment there is a new language to learn. It is specific to those who have lived to tell the tale. No warriors here, but there is brutal honesty, motivation in spades and a sprinkling of humour to make those darkest moments a bit more bearable. A paid subscription gives you a bit more ROCK STAR status in that you can participate in the community, make comments and read the “fine print”. You also get access to Ask Yvonne and that means you can ask me directly anything about my journey, my food, my life and what I did to get to living my best food life.

Your paid subscription pays for my time and effort in preparing answers, writing articles, guest speaking and the creation of the podcasts. I love creating this but I too have bills to pay and mouths to feed.

For the clinicians amongst us, this is where you will likely find an answer to something you had not considered with food, eating, cooking and in my case applying lipstick.

You can also pay for a group at a discount

Never miss some Aussie humour, words with a “u” like colour, calling men blokes and not guys, dollar and not buck. It is here at GAG. | the newsletter where I speak in tongues. I speak the language of HNC for food, travel and life.

Seriously, I just made that up. But you get the idea.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. I like that, means one less job for me to do.
