Calling all local Support Groups!  We are excited to announce today the launch of our 5th Mouth Cancer Foundation Support Group Awards.   Three lucky Support Group could be in with the chance of receiving grants of up to £3500.00!

The Mouth Cancer Foundation recommends all dental practices carry out a thorough head and neck cancer screening on all practice patients at least once a year at routine appointments.  Early diagnosis is the key to ensuring patients have the best possible outcome.

A newly-discovered part of our immune system could be harnessed to treat all cancers, say scientists. The Cardiff University team discovered a method of killing prostate, breast, lung and other cancers in lab tests.

…is the date of our 15th Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk.   Once again, the walk will take place at 12:00 noon in Hyde Park, London.  More details will follow shortly, so please keep checking our website www.mouthcancerwalk.org.

“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. 

Here is Mouth Cancer Foundation Ambassador Andrew Osafo talking about the importance of screening for Mouth Cancer all year round…not just during Mouth Cancer Action Month.  http://www.dentistry.co.uk/2020/01/06/how-to-screen-mouth-cancer/

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.
