The Oral Cancer Foundation is a national public service, non-profit entity designed to reduce suffering and save lives through prevention, Everyone Loves Buttons Customer Spotlight – The Oral Cancer Foundationeducation, 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. See if the Oral Cancer Foundation is putting on walk/run in your community here.
