The Oral Cancer Foundation
July 30, 2009

My name is Gerry.I am 51 and got Tongue Cancer in 2000. I have had multiple surgeries on my tongue w/ life altering consequences. I had a recurrence in 2007. OCFoundation has helped me tremendously. The site is a wealth of REAL facts. The news feed is A+. I check in with it weekly to stay updated on this rare cancer. The Drs could not possibly do this for me today. But most important, the support from the others who have endured this awful disease has been too valuable to detail here. One of my very best friends in life I met on this site. We have not met in person yet. But we met here about 4 years ago and the bond I share with her is one of the greatest gifts in my world. I am so thankful to the OCFoundation.

I had more personal spend time on-line...

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

The fact that Oral Cancer does not get the attention it deserves in the media or in funds for research and overall care.. This is a DEVASTATING illness that is not brought out in to the light enough......

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

I am soooooooooooooo grateful for the Oral Cancer Foundation!
