The 100 day countdown is officially on to the start of the charity’s 15th annual Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk which runs from Saturday 3rd October until Monday 30th November 2020.   This year the walk is different but hundreds of you will step out from your own front door to walk 10 K and raise awareness for mouth, head and neck cancers.  

The Mouth Cancer Foundation would like to wish a happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Dads out there!  

While mouth cancer is a devastating disease, it is so easy to overlook those who are caring for cancer patients. The carer is often on the journey too, and often find they have nobody to talk to about the complex emotions they are also feeling. 

Earlier this month we received some amazing news that The National Lottery Community Fund is  supportting us through Covid-19.  This now means our 15th Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk can still take place.     Our Walk from Home is running from the 3rd October to the 30th of November, to include Mouth Cancer Action Month! 

It is that time of year when we are looking to award grants to reward not for profit organisations working within the head and neck cancer field to help fund their work?   The Charity Project Awards 2020, sponsored by dental implant company Straumann, will award £2000, £1000 and £500 to worthy winners.

It’s  almost 12 weeks since Dental Pracitces were forced to close. That’s roughly the longest time in history that their doors have been shut to the general public. While we understand this move by the government, it does beg the question of how are potential mouth cancer patients are getting diagnosed. 

On the 27th of May Public Health England commissioned a report on oral cancer, with specific focus to incidence, survival and mortality rates in England during the period of 2012 – 2016.
