We’ve been busy here at Mouth Cancer Foundation HQ getting everything ready for the 13th Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk, which this year is taking place on Sunday 30th September in Hyde Park, London.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month in the USA. Close to 49,750 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, that’s 132 new people every day. Of those newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. This is a number which has not significantly improved in decades.

Everyone at the Mouth Cancer Foundation would like to wish all our supporters a very Happy Easter!  We hope the Easter Bunny treats you well!

Would you like to support the cyclists riding 500 miles from Lake Garda to Rome between 19th and 23rd September, but don’t actually fancy using your own pedal power?  Well you can…

We are thrilled to announce that this year we are the chosen charity of dental implant company, Straumann and their bi-annual bike ride event. From 19th to 23rd September 70 plus riders will saddle up and cycle an impressive 500 miles across Italy, in just five days, from the picturesque Lake Garda to the cultural capital of Rome.

World Oral Health Day is celebrated every year on the 20th March. It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young.

No Smoking Day is an annual health awareness day intended to help smokers who want to quit smoking.  We are huge fans of anything which will encourage people to stop smoking.  Smoking is one of the risk factors for head and neck cancers.  Stopping smoking isn’t easy, but if you do smoke we would strongly encourage you to try. 

…to the 13th Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk taking place at 12:00 noon on Sunday 30th September 2018 in Hyde Park, London.   

As it is International Women’s Day today we’re encouraging all the women out there to take charge of your loved ones' lives and make sure they include a check for mouth cancer once a month.  It is a simple and quick to do.  You can even follow our step by step Bite Back at mouth Cancer guide.  https://www.mouthcance
