I have had the pleasure and honor of writing several website articles, news releases and other communications materials for the Oral Cancer Foundation over the past year or so. I could not be more in awe of the commitment of the Foundation and its founder, Brian Hill, to promoting early detection of the disease and to serving as a vital resource to oral cancer victims and their families and friends. Before Brian created the Foundation, public awareness of this surprisingly common and fatal disease was extremely low, and victims had very little access to desperately-needed information and advice. All one has to do is talk with an oral cancer victim to appreciate what a spectacular job the Foundation has done in filling this void. Particularly impressive to me is how the Foundation's online forums brilliantly allow oral cancer survivors to provide insight, counsel and comfort to more recently-diagnosed patients. The pain and suffering these amazing people have experienced is exceeded only by their compassion for their fellow victims. What many people do not realize is how tirelessly Brian works on behalf of the Foundation. For Brian it is virtually a 24/7 obsession, and his wife Ingrid also volunteers a great deal of her time despite the fact that she works full-time elsewhere. Moreover, the Hills' personal financial commitment to the Foundation has been truly above-and-beyond the call of duty, particularly when you consider that Brian's impressive track record as an entrepreneur would make it easy for him to accept a high-paying offer to run a private or public company. The impact that Brian Hill and the Oral Cancer Foundation have made to date is probably impossible to measure. However, if you speak to Brian, it is clear that this impact pales in comparison to what will be accomplished in the years to come.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the passionate feedback from oral cancer victims documenting the invaluable support the Foundation provided in helping them cope with their disease.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire additional support for Brian Hill so that he can reduce his hours to "only" 60 per week.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

witnessing the wonderful spirit of giving back demonstrated by founder Brian Hill and the many oral cancer victims who are so eager to comfort other victims.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

deeply passionate about the Foundation's mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

significantly reduce the incidence of oral cancer, saving thousands of lives in the process.

Ways to make it better...

the Foundation had additional financial resources to better spread the word about its cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

raising additional funds to help them do even greater things and reduce the financial burder shouldered by the Hills.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Brian Hill is an extremely special human being.

Thank god for the Oral Cancer Foundation. Although oral cancer kills one American an hour, it is disease which has been largely unknown by the general public. However, this is slowly beginning to change based in part on the great website that OCF runs, but more importantly by all of the public awareness that has been generated in recent years by OCF. OCF has also lobbied effectively for more funds for oral cancer research, and for the American Dental Association to pay more attention to the condition. Arguably, nothing a dentist does for a patient is more valuable than an oral cancer exam, and too few dentists do this exam on a routine basis. OCF is helping to change all of that.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

enhancing public awareness of oral cancer and engaging more dentists in the early diagnosis of the disease. It is also one of the few places where Oral Cancer sufferers can go to for excellent advice.
