More than 500 walkers joined the Mouth Cancer Foundation as it held its ninth annual Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk on Saturday 20th September 2014 in London’s Hyde Park.
The walk, which is designed to raise much needed awareness and funds to combat all head and neck cancers, attracted people from all over the country who came to the capital to celebrate survivorship and spread the message about how important it is to detect mouth cancers early, spot the signs and know the symptoms.
Founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, Dr Vinod Joshi, says: “Head and neck cancers are particularly vicious and debilitating when detected late. Patients suffer for the rest of their lives and require much post-operative and psychological care. The Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk is a great opportunity for mouth cancer survivors, their families and friends, the public and health professionals to come together and stand up against the disease.”
