Oral cancer brings with it a host of problems, such as swallowing difficulties, learning to use stomach pegs for the first time, losing one's sense of taste - not to mention the side-effects of either chemo or radiation.
The Oral Cancer team were there for me throughout the journey. Having
access to expert opinion and to others who had travelled down the same road made all the difference.

Facing the possibility of having my bottom teeth removed following cancer of the tongue, I decided to try and find information about whether or not this was a good idea on the web. This is when I discovered The Oral Cancer Foundation. After posting the enquiry, I soon heard from Brian Hill (the founder) and Gary Allsebrook (a long standing member). They both offered excellent information, for which I am extremely grateful. Had I simply gone ahead without their advice, I could have ultimately lost my jaw bone. I cannot thank them enough for their comments. The Oral Cancer Foundation also provides an invaluable forum for people all over the world to be able to communicate with and learn from others who are undergoing similar experiences, or who have walked the same road. My only regret is that I did not find them earlier, as in so doing avoided what was a very lonely road.

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

spread its reach much wider, and in so doing help so many more people.

My son was diagnosed with oral cancer at the age of 27. We were devistated and knew nothing about the disease. He searched and found The Oral Cancer Foundation. All the volunteers and survivors and care givers helped my son as he went thru this horrible time. They helped him cope and told him what to expect and what questions he needed to ask his providers. They literally became his family. He passed away last July but he was trying to raise awareness and told everyone he could about the OCF. He wanted to help others as the people involved with OCF helped him. He was a amazing man and would have helped others if he had survived. We will always be grateful to this group of people that give so much to others dealing with this disease.

When my partner was fighting oral cancer, the support and advice I got was incredible. I had friends to turn to for advice, ideas, and somewhere where as a caregiver I could have a rant and not be judged. Thanks for your support and the tireless work you all do to bring oral cancer to the forefront. From accross the pond I support all you do.

The Oral Cancer Foundation provided comfort, support and hope to my mom as she battled a nine year fight against oral cancer. The friends my mom made through the Oral Cancer Foundation have continued to be a support to me after my mom passed away. I will support the Oral Cancer Foundation and their efforts for the rest of my life and I will always be grateful for this wonderful organization for all that they do.

I am young, and found out on my 30th birthday that I had been diagnosed with oral cancer. I have never smoked, chewed, had a cavity, or excessively drank in my life, yet this terrible disease has chosen me. I can say that the people at The Oral Cancer Foundation have helped make this trying and challenging time more bearable. I am extremely grateful for their guidance, help, and counsel. This organization is a great not-for-profit that raises awareness about a terrible cancer that does not get much recognition. I thank God everyday for such a wonderful group of people.

I think I speak for many people when I say that without OCF and the hard work of Brian Hill, Christine Brader, and Eric Statler there are a lot of us who wouldn't even be here, myself one of them.
This site is an invaluable educational and supportive tool for those newly diagnosed, treating
and surviving all types and stages of Oral Cancer. This site not only provides information, it helps spread awareness and brings to the public just what a disfiguring and life altering cancer this is.
It also helps with those in a supportive role caring for victims of this cruel disease.

The OCF is a vital connection for people who find themselves with the numbing news of having oral cancer. It is a lifeline to offer hope, advice, empathy, friends, and to answer the infinite questions, repeatedly, to those diagnosed. There have been invaluable friendships formed among people who have lived through the treatments together and have shared their experience with newcomers. There are truly some "angels" in the forum who have guided the members for years, putting in more time than a full time job, to assist folks through the process of getting to "the new normal". OCF is a Godsend.

If you want a forum which offers personal experience, empathy, advice, Care (with a capital C), kindness, and even the BEST recipes for recovering O.C. patients, The Oral Cancer Foundation is the place to be. These folks truly become family (sometimes even MORE understanding than family). We work together to combat this disease. Thank you Brian and Gary!

The Great!

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

Dentist offices across the country are now checking for oral cancer.

Ways to make it better...

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

never do as well as the ones in charge now.

More feedback...

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

The people.

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

outstanding!

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

make every person on this planet aware of oral cancer and the importance of getting screened.

Ways to make it better...

Survivors should always come back occasionally.

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

Getting the word out.

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

Please be aware of your body and what it is trying to tell you.

OCF is the best resource available online for all people wanting to know more or are dealing with oral cancers. It is focused on this type of cancer and has many VERY first person experiences about all facets of diagnosis, treatment, and post treatment stages.

You get the real deal here:
no sugar coating, over the top high fives, or lack of scientific and medical substance. You can be assured what is being posted is backed up by real experience or references to clinical trial results or other reports published by professional peer review journals.

Brian, Eric, and other key forum members are always watching and weigh in on topics that can use the voice of wisdom and experience.

I cannot say enough about the Oral Cancer Foundation and what it has meant to me as a survivor. I check into the survivor/patient forum every day. The medical information is easy to understand and the people who participate are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. It has helped me to realize that I am not alone. There are no support groups for oral cancer in my area, and this is one way for me to share my feelings and find out that others are going through the same thing. My only regret is that I did not discover this site until after I had completed my treatments.

As my wife goes through her struggle with tongue cancer, the OCF website and the community of people on their forums were of great help preparing us to what was ahead in our quest to become cancer free. Unlike other websites & forums, the information presented was always top quality with the administrators and founders of the organisation going above and beyond to ensure that the views expressed were not skewed but based on scientific evidence.
