Mouth Cancer Voice Awards  
1st place goes to Lucy Hopkins
Runners Up:
Emma Yeardsley and Danielle Roper
The Mouth Cancer Voice Awards is a biennial event looking for the most talented brightest young stars for a unique online talent show. This year in 2009, we are on the look out for individuals and groups who can show off amazing vocal talent. The Mouth Cancer Voice Awards is being supported by Pop star and former Atomic Kitten band member Natasha Hamilton.

“Mouth Cancer is a disease that has affected my family as it is how my Nan died. The Mouth Cancer Voice Awards raise awareness to Mouth Cancer especially in the student world, and have launched a competition for the UK’s best young singer or comedian, which is a great way to have fun and draw attention to this little known, but deadly disease”.

The Mouth Cancer Voice Awards
aims to raise awareness of the risk factors (smoking, drinking and HPV) as well as the symptoms of mouth cancer amongst everyone in the UK, especially University and Higher Education students by reminding them not take their voice for granted, as the 'voice' can be lost through mouth cancer.

This year's event is run by the Mouth Cancer Foundation and takes place during 2009 in the lead up to Mouth Cancer Awareness Week which runs from Sunday 15th to Saturday 21st November 2009.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation is targeting young people through the Mouth Cancer Voice Awards and encouraging them not to take their voices for granted.

Cancer can occur in any part of the mouth, tongue, lips, throat, salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, sinus, and other sites located in the head and neck area. Every three hours someone in the UK will die from mouth cancer.

In its very early stages, mouth cancer can be almost invisible making it easy to ignore. An increasing number of cases are being seen in young people. Drinking and smoking increases the risk of mouth cancers and students are being warned against binge drinking and smoking. Individuals indulging in both face a 30 times greater risk than abstainers.

The Founder of the Mouth Cancer Foundation, Dr Vinod Joshi, says ‘We want all students to know that mouth cancer exists and what symptoms to look out for in order to help with early detection. If in doubt, get it checked out. Don't take your voice for granted! The Voice Awards is a fun way to get our message across".

The Mouth Cancer Voice Awards will celebrate the most talented, brightest young singing, comedy and vocal stars in the country.
