The Oral Cancer Foundation
July 31, 2009

Oral Cancer has been and still is one of the orphan cancers. Not many people know that oral cancer kills one person per hour,everyday 24 hrs a day. I did not know this eventhough I have been in dental field for quite some time now. I came to know about this from the facts and stats put together by the oral cancer foundation. That was an eye opener. I came to the OCF web page while I was looking for information to help my sis, when got diagnosed with cancer of oropharynx. The information on this website and in the forums has been great help in going about the treatment and locating the resources. This is my personal experience. and the people at the OCF are amazing, everyone truly wants to help and lower the mortality rate associated with oc by raising awareness and helping people by giving them much needed information. Without the Oral Cancer Foundation there would not have been any awareness about the death rate and devastation it's causing in the world. The OCF has forums are extremly helpful & support those who suffer the burdens of the disease. The Ocf has made the research efforts possible to identify HPV as a cause of oral cancer, I think which is remarkable. OCF is the best source of information & facts about the oral cancer on the web,period. I believe the oral cancer community would be worse off if Brian Hill or oral cancer foundation will not be there to create awareness and inform everyone about oral cancer.
