Oral Cancer Awareness Month | April
Time to Blow Bubbles for Oral Cancer Awareness!
April is National Oral Cancer Awareness Month and Health Centered Dentistry is raising awareness by blowing bubbles! We have joined Care Credit, My Social Practice, Benco Dental, and Dental Intelligence in their national campaign to raise funds for Oral Cancer Cause (OCC). This amazing non-profit foundation helps patients currently in treatment for oral cancer receive financial support for their every day expenses. They also “create public awareness about the incidence of oral cancer and the necessity of oral cancer exams for early diagnosis and successful treatment.”
Our goal is to raise $500 for this foundation and the patients they support by one bubble at a time.
For every bubble blown, the doctors will donate $5 to OCC. Here’s all you have to do:
Grab some gum and blow the biggest bubble you can.
Take a photo or video of your bubble.
Post it to social media, tag our practice, and include the hashtag: #thebubblechallenge.
No social media? No problem.
If you don’t have social media, but would still like to blow a bubble, let us take a photo/video of you and share it on our social media. Each bubble blown and shared will be a contribution of $5 to OCC.
If you’d like to contribute directly to our goal for OCC, you can click HERE and donate through the online fundraiser.
Oral Cancer is a quick and silent killer as it is usually discovered late in its development, and kills over 9,700 people in the US every year! We’re very excited to participate in this campaign to help raise awareness of Oral Cancer and its the people – and their families – who suffer from it. Please help us support our neighbors suffering from oral cancer retain some sense of normalcy by providing for their daily financial needs. Thank you for your kind hearts and support!
