The Oral Cancer Foundation is a national public service, non-profit entity designed to reduce suffering and save lives through prevention, education, research, advocacy, and patient support activities. Approximately 42,000 people in the US will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer in 2013. While some think this is a rare cancer, mouth cancer will be diagnosed in about 100 new individuals each day in the US alone, and a person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day.
When found at early stages of development, oral cancers have an 80 to 90 % survival rate. Unfortunately, the majority of cases are found as late stage cancers. Late stage diagnosis is not occurring because most of these cancers are hard to diagnoses; it is because of a lack of public awareness coupled with the lack of a national program for opportunistic screenings.
The foundation supports numerous oral cancer related events each year, from free screening events and educational seminars, to walk/run public awareness events around the country. Everyone Loves Buttons has created custom buttons for the Oral Cancer Foundation for the last 5 years, customizing unique buttons for their fundraising walks that are occurring around the country.
