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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am giving OCF 5 stars because I can't give it 10. This wonderful organisation provides imperative support to oral cancers patients and their families, through the patient forum and the authoritative newsfeed. The administrators are cancer survivors who are passionate educators and supporters of others, valuing scientific veracity and honesty in their provision of information. I found this particularly important as cancer can make patients and families feel utterly powerless, whereas knowledge from a trusted source is empowering. I know, as does every forum member that no question is too trivial or too personal or too embarrassing or has been asked too many times, such is the culture of OCF. Technically, the forum is user friendly, being easy to navigate and intuitive.

When my brother was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer our family was devastated, with no clue as to what sort of questions to even ask his treating doctors. I am so thankful that I happened upon the OCF in my search for support and information on the Internet.
