In January 2002, Dr Joshi set up the Restorative Dentistry Oncology Clinics’ Mouth Cancer Awareness website to complement the work he was doing at the clinics he ran at St Luke’s Hospital, Bradford and Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.
The website experienced phenomenal growth over the first 2 years, especially the message board facility which became a robust online support group. This convinced the eminent oral surgeon to establish the Mouth Cancer Foundation in June 2004, a not-for-profit organisation with the intention of becoming a registered charity.
In May 2005, the Mouth Cancer Foundation became a registered charity No. 110929.
“I founded the Mouth Cancer Foundation in June 2004 to be a professional support organisation solely dedicated to helping people with mouth, throat and other head and neck cancers deal with their cancer diagnosis. Through a variety of ways, the charity raises awareness and gives resources, information and contact with people in a similar situation at a difficult time.”
