Fabulous fundraiser, Karen Liesching-Schroder is busy helping to spread the word about the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness...
The Mouth Cancer Foundation website aims to help patients, carers and health professionals find free information on head and neck cancers easily. It provides direct links to the relevant sections of existing cancer sites and includes patient experiences as well as an online support groups.
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.
