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

Rating: 5 stars  

I found the Oral Cancer Foundation near the end of my Husbands radiation/chemo treatment for his Base of Tongue cancer. How I wish I had found the site earlier. Such a wealth of Information .
The Patient Forum was a god send. Such supportive and helpful advice on all manner of treatment and its side effects. I have given OCF's details to the ENT department at our hospital in New Zealand. I spoke to the Head &Neck cancer Nurse specialist too and really recommended that she look at OCF's site and that she pass on the details to all new Head&Neck cancer patients. The information is accurate and gives a great overview of treatment and what to expect. I found the support of other patients and their Caregivers incredibly helpful and supportive. This fabulous group got me through a recurrence too.
When dealing with a cancer, online support and advice is what you need. I found it at the Oral Cancer Foundation .

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Just a fabulous site. When we got the diagnosis of base of tongue cancer we knew absolutely nothing about this type of cancer and how it was treated. . I literally learnt everything I needed to know from this site and from its Patients Forum. Far more information and practical help than we ever got from our Oncology team. The support from other Patients and Caregivers was essential to our progress and to my peace of mind.
I simply could not have got through without the support of the Oral Cancer Foundation.
4 years later I am still getting advice and support. I recommend this support site to all.

My husband was diagnosed with stage IV Base of Tongue cancer in December 2010. Unfortunately I did not find the oral cancer foundation's web site until he had almost completed his radiation/chemo treatment. How I wish I had found this site earlier to guide us through all the stages of diagnosis and treatment. The information on this site is accurate and up to date. I have found and continue to find the advice of fellow members on the patient forum to be invaluable. Just to know that others too have walked this path and are surviving is so important to me.Unfortunately my husband has had a reoccurrence but I continue to get advice and strength from the members of this site. We are doing well now, but I check in on a daily basis - it is a lifeline.
