Wondering what to do with any old £1 coins that you have before they cease being legal tender on 15th October?   We’re encouraging anyone with that dilemma to make your pound count by donating to the GivaPound initiative. Simply donate to the Mouth Cancer Foundation by texting MCFG17 £1 to 70070.

Mouth Cancer Foundation Patient Ambassador, Eva Grayzel, is up to her fundraising antics again. This time she is working with former professional basketball player, Karl Tatham, who also organises basketball camps for at-risk children, changing their perspectives on what they can achieve.

We are asking all Dental Practices, who support screening for head and neck cancers, to contact us for free Bite Back at Mouth Cancer posters and leaflets to display in your practice waiting areas.

One of the reasons that mouth cancer is still on the increase is that people are not familiar with the signs and symptoms of the disease until it is too late. Make yourself aware of the symptoms and you may just save your life or someone else’s. 

There are two months to go until the start of the 12th annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk. 

The 27th July each year has been declared by the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncology Societies as World Head and Neck Cancer Day.  There are over 500,000 cases and 200,000 head and neck cancer related deaths globally each year. With greater awareness of the signs and symptoms to look out for some of these cases are preventable.

Come to this year’s Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk and you can take advantage of a free mouth cancer screening courtesy of Mouth Cancer Foundation Ambassadors, Mr Mahesh Kumar and Mr Bhavin Visavadia and their colleagues from London North West Healthcare NHS Trust.   All screeners have kindly agreed to give up their time for one day to help our charity.

As many of you will know we’re involved in a national GivaPound initiative, which throughout the next 12 months encourages everyone to give at least one pound to the campaign. The aim is to then see how much a £1 donation can turn into.
