Review for The Oral Cancer Foundation, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with base of tongue cancer a few years ago. Initially, my ENT talked of cutting out my tongue, then radiation and chemo, followed by slicing or disecting my neck near the jugular vein. Quite frankly I contemplated suicide. I will be forever be grateful to the Oral Cancer Foundation. We learned how to talk to the ENT by learning a so much from this site. The ENT saved my tongue, didn't slice up my neck, but I did go through some of the roughest chemo and radiation treatments according to him. I made it, and have been cancer free for 4 years.

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

my continuing to live without too severe of quality of life issues

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

how helpful the members are.

Ways to make it better...

I never had cancer to begin with.
