Our Ambassador, Dentist, Dr Philip Lewis will be lecturing on all things to do with the early detection of mouth cancer at Professional Dentistry North in Manchester today and tomorrow.

Today, on the second day of Mouth Cancer Action Month we thought we would share this wonderful poem from Paul Strong in recognition of our charity’s website.

Another November another Mouth Cancer Action Month!  Throughout November dental health and oral cancer charities, dentists, doctors and pharmacies unite to educate members of general public about a disease that kills more people in the UK than cervical and testicular cancers combined.

Did you know…? …an ulcer that does not heal within 3 weeks should be check out. …lumps or swellings in the mouth, jaw or neck should be checked out. …persistent sore throats for more than 6 weeks should be checked out.

The race to the deadline for using old round one pound coins is definitely on! In just two days, on 15th October, all old £1 coins will cease being legal tender.  There is still time though to search your purse, pockets and piggy banks for all old £1 coins and make them count by donating to the GivaPound initiative.

Another year and another Mouth Cancer Action Month is fast approaching. This November is gearing up to being busier than ever. As part of our on-going commitment to raise awareness of the debilitating disease that mouth cancer is, the charity is urging everyone to get involved by displaying information, leaflets and posters in dental and hospital waiting areas.

Thank you to all the amazing walkers who turned out on Saturday to support our 10 KM charity walk. There were over 300 of us enjoying the glorious sunshine in Hyde Park. The event is designed to raise much needed awareness about the early warning signs of the disease as well as funds to combat all head and neck cancers. 

The years are rolling by and now there are just three days to go until the 12thMouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk!  The forecast is for sunshine, so pack your picnic, get out your walking shoes and maybe even throw in a sun hat.

The seaside town of Brighton was awash with colour at the weekend as the 5k Color Run took place. Among the runners was a team of 9 from SCA Trafalgar Dental Practice in Southampton. All the training they did earlier in the year has paid off as the team has raised an incredible £686.37 for the charity.
