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

Rating: 5 stars  

Oral cancer brings with it a host of problems, such as swallowing difficulties, learning to use stomach pegs for the first time, losing one's sense of taste - not to mention the side-effects of either chemo or radiation.
The Oral Cancer team were there for me throughout the journey. Having access to expert opinion and to others who had travelled down the same road made all the difference.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Facing the possibility of having my bottom teeth removed following cancer of the tongue, I decided to try and find information about whether or not this was a good idea on the web. This is when I discovered The Oral Cancer Foundation. After posting the enquiry, I soon heard from Brian Hill (the founder) and Gary Allsebrook (a long standing member). They both offered excellent information, for which I am extremely grateful. Had I simply gone ahead without their advice, I could have ultimately lost my jaw bone. I cannot thank them enough for their comments. The Oral Cancer Foundation also provides an invaluable forum for people all over the world to be able to communicate with and learn from others who are undergoing similar experiences, or who have walked the same road. My only regret is that I did not find them earlier, as in so doing avoided what was a very lonely road.

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

spread its reach much wider, and in so doing help so many more people.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
