Mission Statement

One person every hour of every day dies from oral cancer, over 8000 people a year in The United States alone. It is one of the cancers that are on the rise. When compared to other cancers very little has been done to inform the public on how they can avoid the ravages of oral cancer. Oral cancer is caused by use of alcohol, tobacco and exposure to HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) which causes cervical cancer in women. There is not a cure for oral cancer; the key for life saving treatment lies in early detection. The only way to save lives is to get the message out and that is the mission of The International Oral Cancer Association FNA the Fight Oral Cancer Foundation. You can help save lives by donating your time and expertise.
