My only regret is that I did not find the OCF website until several months after my treatments ended. The forum has been incredible for me, putting me in touch with many others who have gone through the same experiences and are dealing with the same after affects of treatment. The information available on the site and especially the forum helped me get through the toughest time of my life. I will always be grateful for this wonderful foundation.

The Great!

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

Boosting my morale when I was really down.

Ways to make it better...

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

Try to reach out to patients while they are going through treatment to let them know there's a place they can come for info and support.

More feedback

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

The wonderful people on the forum.

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

I've only "met" them on line but they have been informative and supportive and generally wonderful people.

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

overcome those challenges.

Ways to make it better...

I had found it sooner.

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

Getting word out to the public about early detection of oral cancer. Getting the dental profession to make oral cancer screenings part of their routine.

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

Cancer is horrible and nothing can change that but OCF has helped me deal with it.
