The Oral Cancer Foundation
April 12, 2013

I am righting this for my friend Lisa Petersen who was diagnosed with Stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma....cancer of the tongue in 2010. After a very short battle with this disease, she lost her life at 41 years old. Lisa was determined to speak, but cancer silenced her words. Cancer has not silenced her voice..... During her fight, she contacted the Oral Cancer Foundation, and found support with two wonderful women dedicated to this organization, Christine Brader and Susan Lauria. They showed so much support for her while she was ill. Lisa was so full of life even though her body was failing from this disease. If Lisa was alive today......she would be righting this to support the Oral Cancer Foundation. She wanted to do a walk with Chrisine Brader in her future, which never happened. I have become Lisa's Voice to help spread the awareness of this silent deadly disease. Through the help of Christine and Susan I held Lisa's Voice Oral Cancer Awareness event to support the Oral Cancer Foundation. I would give this organization 10 stars!!!! So many hardworking volunteers and the dedication is unbelievable. The dental communities across the US and other countries give the OCF total support. Cancer was not in Lisa's plan for her life, but if she was here today, she would be righting this.
