Did you know that oral cancer kills roughly one person every hour in America? Oral cancer is one of the deadliest cancers in the United States. Approximately 60,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.
Many patients battle oral cancer by receiving some sort of surgery. Some patients need to have their mouths reconstructed. In some cases, recovery requires the removal of the palates, teeth, or pieces of the tongue. For these people, chewing gum or blowing a bubble is no longer an option.
To show our support and spread awareness of oral cancer, we are doing the Bubble Challenge and blowing bubbles for those who can’t!
Here’s how you can participate:
Step 1: Post a video or photo to social media of you blowing a bubble for those who can’t. Invite your friends and family to join you!
Step 2: Share your post with us by tagging Omni Dental in your photo or video. Let us know if you are blowing your bubble for a friend or loved one.
Step 3: Challenge at least 3 of your friends and family members to join in on the challenge and blow a bubble for a cause!
Step 4: Schedule an appointment for an oral cancer screening with Omni Dental. Your dental professionals are able to detect early signs of oral cancer and provide you with knowledge about what increases risk of oral cancer.
Step 5: Donate to The Oral Cancer Cause Inc. This organization’s purpose is to improve the quality of life for oral cancer patients through financial support. Visit their website to make a donation.
See your Omni Dental team do the Bubble Challenge on our Facebook page! We are showing are support and we’re looking forward to seeing you do the same. Call us today at 888-860-4886 to schedule your oral cancer screening appointment with your local Carter Lake and Council Bluffs dental practice.
