The Oral Cancer Foundation
July 28, 2009

I am a medical provider and a patient who has been treated for Stage IV oral cancer. I have found the Oral Cancer Foundation to be a wonderful resource to allow me the opportunity to learn about my disease, stay abreast of new research and developments, direct questions to my Cancer providers, and allow me the opportunity to NOT feel alone, isolated or without a sense of support. I cannot stress how important they have been in a disease that does not receive the prominence of other more common diseases. First Rate!!!!

More feedback

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

The opportunity to review threads and learn of others with similar experiences to mine as well as to review the most current research and information on my disease.

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

I have interacted, on line, and have been very pleased with the information I've received!

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

Help to increase awareness to those at risk before the disease develops, to improve screening by making the individual a more vocal advocate for that screening to be done.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to find out about the organization sooner, due to better awareness of a relatively uncommon form of cancer.

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

Oral Cancer is so relatively small in incidence relative to other more heavily publicized diseases.

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

I appreciate all they do!!!!
