The Oral Cancer Foundation
July 20, 2009

I have been involved with the Oral Cancer Foundation since 2003 when I was diagnosed with tongue cancer at the age of 41. I met some unbelievablely generous people who unfortunately did not survive their battles with this horrible disease, but they gave unselfishly to others while they were suffering themselves. I will never forget them or any of the other amazing friends I have made through OCF. It is unquestionablely the best source for information and support for people dealing with head and neck cancer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

oral cancer screening events that raise public awareness.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing.

More feedback

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

the opportunity to meet unbelievably generous people willing to offer support and comfort to complete strangers.

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

extraordinary.

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

change the five year survival rate of oral cancer by making a real difference in early detection through educating dental and medical professionals and increasing public awareness.

Ways to make it better...

no suggestions.

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

the continuing job of fund raising.

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

Brian Hill has never given up when most people would have. He is a survivor in more ways than one and has given more than anyone should ask or expect.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
