After hearing about the plight of an 18 year old Zimbabwean girl, Iain Hutchison offered his services for free. Tare's family contacted Saving Faces through our website. Tare has a benign tumour that had grown so large around her mouth that she struggled to breathe and it was threatening her life.
In 2003 Christine Dunningham was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth.
The strength of her family and friends helped her deal with her condition. Now she brings her experiences together for the benefit of others. Christine's stirring account of her battle with mouth cancer has been put together in her own words, in her book entitled,"Thank you with a smile".
Christine is selling copies of her book to increase awareness of mouth cancer and to raise funds for Saving Faces. If you would like to obtain a copy please contact us.
Dan Welldon entered a bike race in the Scottish Highlands to raise money for Saving Faces and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The race itself was eventful and made front page news in all the newspapers in Scotland as it was sabotaged by a few locals upset that the roads were closed for 3 hours early on a Sunday morning. Thus halfway through the event cyclists found themselves riding through a 20 mile carpet of nails that had been strewn along the route.
