Oral cancer rates in the US have been increasing. But over the last few years the rate has been alarming. So alarming, that the scientific community is beginning to use the word epidemic when describing the situation.

There is a newly identified etiology for oral cancer that is viral. The HPV-16 virus, which has historically caused the vast majority of cervical cancer, is soon to become the dominant cause of oral cancers, as it is such a common and ubiquitous virus in our country. In the US alone, 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with oral cancer and one person will die every hour of every day because of this disease. The fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals. We cannot stop this virus from spreading; our only hope to save lives is through early discovery, public awareness and professional involvement. Accomplishing these tasks cannot be done without your direct support and involvement.

The Oral Cancer Foundation represents the hope that those lost to oral cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face oral cancer will be supported and that one-day oral cancer will be eliminated. Only when many individuals raise their voices together and collectively contribute their resources, will change take place.

Thank you for your support to make oral cancer history!
