The South Carolina Community Chapter, located in Charleston, SC, holds events throughout the state to help educate people about oral, head and neck cancers as well as raise money to help those battling the disease.

Yearly events include school talks at local Lowcountry schools; screenings at regional events like the Family Circle Cup Tennis Tournament and Cancer’s A Beach 5K; and patient support events like the Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Banquet and the Survivor’s Retreat, both for patients and their families who have fought and continue to fight this disease.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact, Alissa Yeargin at alissa.yeargin@greenvilleent.com.

Kristi believes dentists can be a resource for early detection by conducting a thorough mouth, jaw, and throat examination upon every visit. “While the dentists couldn’t have prevented cancer, they possibly could have been a great resource for early detection. This could have saved my husband from going through such grueling treatments.”Kristi Mason
