The Oral Cancer Foundation
July 18, 2009

When my husband was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2007, I immediately turned to the internet for information that would help me cope with this devastating news. One of my searches led me to the Oral Cancer Foundation. I was so grateful to find such a rich resource for anything related to my husband's diagnosis. I spent days reading all of the pages and topics available. I started feeling so much more in control of my husband's treatment plans and how we were going to get through the next months. Information is definitely power and the OCF website was my place of power and solace. I found the message boards to be a godsend in every way...both for medical decisions and emotional support. I spent time on the OCF boards everyday trying to glean information that would allow me the best chance of getting my husband thru his treatments successfully. I continue to visit the website everyday to give back what was given to me. Thank you Oral Cancer Foundation for all that you do.
