Reply to "What is Mouth Cancer?"

As someone who started on this roller-coaster with a blocked saliva gland in 2004 which very soon turned cancerous, resulting in two major operations to replace my jawbone, half tongue, neck disection etc etc. I was then told the cancer had spread to my head which meant having Gamma knife treatment. Later it had spread to a different part of my head and lungs for which I had radiotherapy. I consider myself a 'mouth cancer' patient, I am still treated by a 'Head and neck' team at the hospital and I spend a great deal of my life raising awareness and raising funds for mouth cancer. I can't even get what's left of my tongue around 'Oral Head and Neck Cancer Patient'!! Please let me stay a 'mouth cancer' patient!

Dr Joshi and his marvellous team have devoted the past five or so years so setting up this Mouth Cancer website - receiving numerous awards and accolades along the way. The blue and white logo is now synonymous with 'Mouth Cancer' and well on its way to being 'up there' with breast cancer as a very recognisable charity.

Maybe I should start a 'Jaw-breaking, head, neck and lung cancer awareness week'!!!!!!!!!?

P.S. What would I do with all the tee-shirts?
