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

Rating: 5 stars  

Just a fabulous site. When we got the diagnosis of base of tongue cancer we knew absolutely nothing about this type of cancer and how it was treated. . I literally learnt everything I needed to know from this site and from its Patients Forum. Far more information and practical help than we ever got from our Oncology team. The support from other Patients and Caregivers was essential to our progress and to my peace of mind.
I simply could not have got through without the support of the Oral Cancer Foundation.
4 years later I am still getting advice and support. I recommend this support site to all.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband was diagnosed with stage IV Base of Tongue cancer in December 2010. Unfortunately I did not find the oral cancer foundation's web site until he had almost completed his radiation/chemo treatment. How I wish I had found this site earlier to guide us through all the stages of diagnosis and treatment. The information on this site is accurate and up to date. I have found and continue to find the advice of fellow members on the patient forum to be invaluable. Just to know that others too have walked this path and are surviving is so important to me.Unfortunately my husband has had a reoccurrence but I continue to get advice and strength from the members of this site. We are doing well now, but I check in on a daily basis - it is a lifeline.
