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. In the US, a person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day. However, when found early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90 % cure rate. 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.
