The Mouth Cancer Foundation is gearing up for a busy Mouth Cancer Action Month this November.    As part of its ongoing commitment to raise awareness of this debilitating disease, the charity is urging everyone to get involved by displaying information, leaflets and posters in dental and hospital waiting areas.     

Thank you to everyone who has sent in their walk sponsorship money already.    If you are still collecting and want to send money in to support the Mouth Cancer Foundation this year, please send any donations by 31st December 2016 to the charity at the following address:

Last week 19 teams took part in the Golf Team Challenge at Condover Golf Club in Shrewsbury hoping to win the Clare Memorial Cup.  Clare Jones holds a very special place in the hearts of our People’s Ambassador Pat, her husband Colin, her brothers, family, friends and the Mouth Cancer Foundation. 

The link between the Human Papillomava Virus (HPV) and mouth cancer is well documented with HPV now being acknowledged as one of the leading causes of the disease.   HPV is a very common virus group.  It affects skin and mucosal areas of the body and can be spread by skin contact.  Most infections are fought off by the body’s immune system.  However it does cause 5% of all cancers. 

This Friday 23rd September 19 teams will be swinging it out in the Golf Team Challenge at Condover Golf Club in Shrewsbury hoping to win the Clare Memorial Cup. 

In just two months the dental industry will come together rocking it at the Dental Charity Winter Ball in aid of the Mouth Cancer Foundation.  The event has almost sold out but there are still a few tickets left. 

Sun screen…√ Sun hat…√ Picnic…√ Walking shoes…√ Great – you are already for the 11th Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk!  The start and finish area is at the Bandstand in Hyde Park and the walk starts at 12 noon on Saturday 20th August 2016.

Once again, the Mouth Cancer Foundation is thrilled to announce that King’s College Hospital is able to donate their screening unit to the charity’s walk in two weeks’ time.  The screening unit will be manned by Mouth Cancer Foundation’s Ambassadors, Mr Mahesh Kumar and Mr Bhavin Visavadia and their colleagues from London North West Healthcare NHS Trust.
