April is Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month and the early signs of head and neck cancer can fool a person, but head and neck cancer is no joke. This year approximately 550,000 persons worldwide will be diagnosed with and approximately 300,000 will die of an oral, head, and/or neck cancer. Of these, 65,000 in the USA will learn they have oral, head, and/or neck cancer and 14,000 persons (someone's spouse, parent, child, sibling, good friend, etc.) will die. Thank you for contributing to Brandon's Foundation, and through it, the research that will change these statistics.

UPDATE - Mardi Gras MASKerade - Thank you to all who participated in or contributed in any way to the March 2, 2019 Mardi Gras MASKerade! (For a peak at the event, check out photos taken by Get Creative Photo Booths throughout the evening!) More than $30,000 was raised that evening for head and neck cancer research! Since the Mardi Gras MASKerade the Foundation has sent $25,000 to the UC Health for Brandon's 2019 head and neck cancer research project award!

April 29th Event - Please plan to join us Monday, April 29 for the 7th annual Great Food for a Great Cause at The National Exemplar (Mariemont) to honor Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds from food and beverage served between 5 to 9 p.m. - whether dine in or carry out - will benefit Brandon's Foundation (so head and neck cancer research)! Make a reservation NOW online or phone 513-271-2103.

Thank you for helping us work to end this awful disease.
