Anthony Evans was diagnosed with throat cancer in January 2015 when he was just 49 years old.  He had surgery to remove the lump, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  His wife Jackie, who also had to help their two young children, 10 and 13 years old at the time through their Dad’s experience describes the time as ‘Just horrific!’

…to the great Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk. The horn will sound at 12 noon to start the 12th annual walking event which takes place in London’s Hyde Park to raise awareness for all head and neck cancers.

Our colleagues at HPV Action have carried out a survey to coincide with World Immunization Week.  The results reveal overwhelming support for all boys to be vaccinated against the human papillomavirus, (HPV). 97% of dentists and 94% of GPs would have their own sons vaccinated against HPV. 

The World Health Organisation has declared the last week in April World Immunization Week, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of full immunization throughout life.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month in the USA. Close to 49,750 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, that’s 132 new people every day. Of those newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. This is a number which has not significantly improved in decades.

Our brand new Mouth Cancer 10K Awareness Walk poster has arrived in our office today! We think it looks fantastic. It contains all you need to know about out 12th annual walk taking place later this year. 

Our colleague, Chris Curtis, from the Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Support Group is currently mid-way through a trip visiting top head and neck cancer treatment centres, patients, survivors, families and health professionals in Gran Canaria in Spain, New York, Boston, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts in America.
