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.

A dental group with practices in Market Harborough and Leicester has raised much needed funds for the chairty by getting on their bikes and cycling 14 miles around Pitsford Water Reservoir in Northamptonshire.

Calling all local Support Groups!  We are excited to announce today the launch of our fourth Mouth Cancer Foundation Support Group Awards.   One lucky support group could be in with the chance of receiving an award of up to £1500.00!

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.
