Mouth Cancer Foundation Ambassador, Steve Hagg, has flown to New Jersey in the US to take part in a patient advisory meeting today, with other patient representatives from France, Germany and the USA. 

Just a reminder that if you live in the Birmingham area and are looking for a local support group then Get A-Head is running its next quarterly meeting from 1700 to 1900 in the Outpatient Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham on Wednesday 4th May.  

This is an appeal to all individuals who make a donation to the Mouth Cancer Foundation or send in sponsorship forms with monies they have collected from family and friends.  Where possible please will you let us know if you and your supporters are eligible to gift aid your money. It is so easy to do, costs you nothing and will benefit the charity immensely.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month in the USA.   Close to 48,250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. It will cause over 9,575 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day.  Of those 48,250 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.
