Working Together to Beat Mouth Cancer
The Mouth Cancer Foundation was established in June 2004 to be a professional support organization dedicated to supporting people with mouth, throat and other head & neck cancer face the crisis of cancer.
It gained charitable status (registered charity No. 1109298) in May 2005. Support, can be a vital component of the healing process for head and neck cancer patients. It can have an enormous positive impact in meeting the psychosocial needs of patients as well as preserving, restoring, and promoting physical and emotional health.
During the past three years, the MCF website has become an important source of information for oral and head and neck cancer patients who are trying to gain a better understanding of their illness and their lives. The Mouth Cancer Foundation website aims to help patients, carers and health professionals find free information on mouth cancers easily. It provides direct links to the relevant sections of existing cancer sites and includes patient experiences as well as an online support group.
