The countdown is now on as there are only 2 months to go until the 11th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk at 12 Noon in London’s Hyde Park.   

Do you want to be involved in medical research?  Are you willing to give a small blood sample?  Are you willing to join a pool of volunteers supporting studies in a range of medical conditions?

The Christie Hospital NHS Trust in Manchester has recently published the results of 5 year’s clinical research looking into the use of the hand operated device which fits inside a patients’ mouth, Therabite® versus wooden spatulas in the improvement of Trismus, (any restriction of mouth opening), in head and neck cancer patients.

Last week we brought you the story of the 13 leading clinicians, scientists and academics with a special interest in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and the diseases it causes urging the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, to expedite a decision to extend the national HPV vaccination programme to include all adolescent boys, protecting over 400,000 boys per year.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation is looking for reliable and pro-active individuals to volunteer at the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk.   There are various fun volunteering roles available throughout the day. Duties include lead, middle and rear walking, route marshalling and helping out at the start and finish area setting up the event and signing in the participants.

Are you planning on holding a free screening day or would you like some leaflets to display in your dental practice?

We were thrilled to receive this photograph from Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme member NHS Dentist in Fulham, West London, proudly displaying their membership plaque for the third year running. The NHS Dental practice was the first dentist to join the scheme when it launched.    

How do you fancy getting your hands on one of these lovely medals?  All you have to do is take part in the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk in Hyde Park this summer.   The 11th walk starts at 12 noon on Saturday 20th August.  To join us sign up today at  www.mouthcancerwalk.org/register.
