Here are some pics from the recent Mouth Cancer Awareness stall held on the Concourse at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff on Wednesday 16th November 2016 by the Head and neck cancer dietitians and Dental nurses from Smile. The stall aimed to show patients, staff members and other members of the public how important it is the be aware of the signs of mouth cancer and prevention.
Thank you to all those who attended and supported us on the day.
A lovely time had by all at one of our support groups in 2016. We had Lynette Webbe who is a local Holistic Laughter Therapist attend one of our support groups this year, to show us the importance of laughter in health and wellbeing. We all had a good laugh and were able to shake off the cobwebbs 🙂 Thank you to all who attended.
A big thank you to Natwest Bank who kindly adopted Faceup Cymru as their local charity for six months. Through various fundraising activities they have managed to raise an impressive £3000 in total which has enabled us to buy the much needed electrolarynx.
Our thanks to them and their staff for their support.
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! We would like to thank you all for your on going support in helping to raise money to support patients going through head and neck cancer treatment and beyond.
We look forward to many more events and support groups in 2017!!!! Please feel free to contact us with any ideas.

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have been involved in raising funds for FaceUp as it has allowed us to buy electrolarynxes for some of our patients who have had a laryngectomy.
This surgery involves removal of the voice box. The electrolarynx is a communication aid that allows that person to have a voice again so that they can communicate with their friends and family.
Without the fundraising efforts of those supporting FaceUp it would have not been possible to provide this life enhancing equipment to these patients.
We are so grateful for your support.
