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

Rating: 5 stars  

When my husband was diagnosed with stage IV cancer of the largnx, I was lost. I then found the Oral Cancer Web site. It was a god send for me. I found reliable information on the disease, tips on treatment issues and a feeling that we were not alone. The Survivor/Patient forum gave me the tools to deal with being a caregiver. It made my life so much easier, as I knew what to expect from actual survivors and caregivers. Brian Hill has worked unselfishly to promote the awareness of oral cancer and give the world the wonderful tool of the web site. I hope everyone can be made aware of this organization so oral cancer can be diagnosed earlier and more lives can be saved.

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

Being able to share and get first hand information on issues with oral cancer.

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

Wonderful, dedicated and caring people. Brian Hill can't be matched as a driving force behind the organization.

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

Fund research for oral cancer and do more advertising to raise awareness of oral cancer.

Ways to make it better...

I would have know about them when my husband was first diagnosed

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

Funding and getting the message out about oral cancer.

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

The members of the Oral Cancer Foundation are like family.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I have made donations to help fund research and keep the web site operating. I have shared the information about the foundation wherever I could. I convinced the our local cancer association to include information about oral cancer and the Oral Cancer F.
