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

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm 32 years old and have oral cancer. It started 3 years ago with a sore thoat. I have a husband and 2 little boys, that don't understand Why mommy is sick all the time. OCF has experience personal that answer my questions and give me support. There is some question they can't answer on line, so they refer you back to your doctor. I have lost about half of my tongue and my teeth,and I have a feeding tube and can not chew, swallow or talk. I've had 4 surgery and the OCF organization has been there for me, be it to rant or to know, what I can put down the feeding tube. or to just cry. They have given me new hope. They have good resources and easy to find answers.

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

the crew, no matter what they been thou, they give you hope and support.

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

wonderful.

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

It could help look for a cure and help more people. Help spead the word that oral cancer kills.

Ways to make it better...

could not have been

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

working with a deadly illness.

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

To many people are getting cancer.
