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

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a model non-profit organisation which helps oral cancer patients, survivors and caregivers throughout the United States and in the wider world. It has helped me through two occurrences of oral cancer and I hold the managers and moderators in the highest esteem. They give information but also the emotional support that is necessary for us when we go through this devastating disease.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I found the Oral Cancer Foundation in 2009 after major tongue surgery and returned there this year after a recurrence, another surgery and radiotherapy. My life would be a lot harder if I didn't have the Patient Forum to call on when times get tough. Other patients and dedicated volunteers give advice and support about all manner of treatments, especially radiotherapy which can be particularly dire when directed at the head and neck.

I'm impressed by the overall philosophy and tone of the site. The Forum is beautifully moderated and newcomers are welcomed with sympathy and ready answers to their questions.

It's also heartwarming to feel a link to oral cancer patients all over the world. No one wants to join the oral cancer community but if your life takes this path, the Oral Cancer Foundation makes it so much more bearable.
