Mass General Giving

Head and neck cancer can involve the face, eyes, mouth, throat and ears. Patients endure complex, aggressive, multidisciplinary treatments as well as psychosocial problems.

Caring for these patients is a true calling for Elene Viscosi. With tireless energy, she has developed a unique skill set to guide and support patients through what may be the most physically and emotionally trying of all cancer therapies.

Elene’s investment in the well-being of her patients is extraordinary and extends well beyond the expected limits of clinical care. She follows patients closely and communicates regularly with family and friends involved in their care. Upon completion of therapy, Elene assists in the patient’s often-difficult transition back into the mainstream of life, family and work. Elene accompanies her patients on their journey through treatment until they are safely home and therapy is but a distant memory.
