“If we can save one person from leaving it too late, I’d love that' - Debbie Caquias was left unable to eat or talk but was determined to raise awareness to help others”.   You may remember reading our story on Birmingham Mum Debbie Caquias last year.  The Mum-of-two was left unable to eat or talk by mouth cancer but was determined to raise awareness to help others. 

Today is the start of National Obesity Awareness Week, encouraging everyone to take action to help improve the nation’s health.

All boys over the age of 14 have been unfairly excluded from the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccination programme since it was introduced to boys in school year 8 back in September 2019.   This leaves older boys unprotected and at higher risk of HPV related cancers including Head and Neck Cancer. 

If you took part in our 14th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk last September, there is still time to send in any donations. The official deadline to send in monies has now passed.  However, if you have any lose change lying around or are looking for a home for any Christmas money there is still time to forward any last-minute monies to us:

Dry January is run by Alcohol Change UK, aiming to educate people about the dangers of drinking too much alcohol and encouraging people to give up alcohol for a whole month.   It has become an annual initiative where people give up alcohol for the month of January.   Dry January started in 2013 with 4,000 people.   By 2018 over 4 million people were taking part.
