I really would appreciate more members giving me their thoughts. Thanks.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation has been representing head and neck cancer patients and has been talking about head and neck cancer awareness all this while. See our website and media releases. So the term ‘mouth cancer’ has already being identified with ‘head and neck cancer’ by the media and the public and NICE. If we leave the other head and neck cancers out of the Mouth Cancer awareness campaign, how do we increase awareness of these cancers when there is no other campaign for them. I don’t think there is room in the year or support for a fragmented approach through of having a separate ‘Larynx Cancer Awareness Week’ or a ‘Throat Canccer Awareness Week’ or a ‘Nasopharyngeal Cancer Awareness Week’. And which organisation is going to do this?
