From today our website, www.mouthcancerwalk.org, is open for registration to take part in the 12th Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk.  The walk will take place at 12:00 on Saturday 30th September 2017 in Hyde Park, London. 

A small UK company, Unitalk has launched ‘Chabble’, a unique communication and translation Licence for tablets and iPads. Chabble will revolutionise the way many people communicate who either have a condition that affects their speech and movement or who simply want to break down language barriers and be understood quickly without the requirement of interpreters.

We are pleased to announce the winners of our biannual Mouth Cancer Foundation Support Group Awards. Headcases, CHANGES and CHANCE – (Coping with Head and Neck Cancer and its Effects), were selected from a number of applications we received from support groups and projects across the UK that work with and support people affected by head and neck cancer.

It’s Valentine’s Day – a national celebration of love recognised around the world.  At the charity we are encouraging you to love yourself enough this year to carry out Bite Back at Mouth Cancer and tell all your family and friends about it as well. 

Every year the tiny island of La Graciosa, near Lanzarote in Spain, holds a triathlon event. This year on the 4th of March, dentist Fernando Gonzalez Eriksson, will swim, 1k, mountain bike, 20k and run 6k in a bid to raise awareness for mouth cancer.

Tomorrow is world Cancer Day. Join thousands of others around the globe taking part in the ‘We can, I can’ campaign. World Cancer Day will explore how everyone, as a collective or as individuals can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer. So as a group we can work together to prevent cancer or create healthy schools and workplaces.

We would like to acknowledge our highest fundraisers from the 2016 walk. They are as follows: Maxine Pooley and Team Pooley, Sasha Roberts, Elizabeth Reed and Team Reed, Hemant Dixit, Virginia Jordan, David Hatton, Neal Hrachovec, Paresh Shah, Bahareh Ghorabl, Jaya Rajamanie and Team Bilzard and Roy Target.

We are very happy to start the week with this gem of an announcement….£19,897.04 is the amount you raised at the walk that took place on Saturday 20th August 2016 in London’s Hyde Park!  So a huge congratulations and big   ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who got sponsors for last year’s event. 

We are excited to announce that Brenda’s Easy to Swallow Cookbook is now available to buy from Amazon.  Produced by Brenda Brady, in association with the Mouth Cancer Foundation, Brenda’s Easy-to-Swallow Cookbook is for mouth cancer sufferers, and anyone who has difficulty chewing and swallowing food.

The charity was rather impressed to come across a company called Simpal who are providing free calls/text/data and mobiles where appropriate, to those affected by cancer.
