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 support.

This organization provides information about the rates of occurrence, risk factors which lead to oral cancer, treatments, current research, and current oral cancer related news.
A patient / survivor forum is open to the public where those currently fighting oral cancer can gain insights and inspiration from those who have been there before them. A comprehensive resource list is also available to link you to other pertinent oral cancer data on the web and elsewhere for patients, caregivers, and the public.
