WEAR YOUR BLUE RIBBON WITH PRIDE.

WEAR YOUR BLUE RIBBON WITH PRIDE.

Mouth Cancer Action Month kicks off next week!

As a show of support for the campaign, we are urging all our readers to wear a Blue Ribbon Badge throughout November.

The Blue Ribbon Badge is a great way to initiate a conversation with people about mouth cancer, educating them around the risk factors and early warning signs.

More than 250,000 people throughout the UK have supported the Blue Ribbon Appeal, raising funds to set up and maintain Mouth Cancer Action Month and create hundreds of media stories raising the awareness of mouth cancer – so come on Tamesiders’ let’s do our bit!

The campaign aims to influence policy-makers within government on anti-smoking legislation and policies, minimum alcohol pricing, gender-neutral HPV vaccination, the introduction and development of oral screening programmes and the exemption of dental charges for patients with mouth cancer.
