Benco Dental Managing Directors Rick and Chuck Cohen (shown), join the team at the nation’s largest privately owned dental distribution company in their support of the Second Annual Bubble Gum Challenge.
During the Lucy Hobbs Project 5th annual celebration of women in dentistry, hosted by Benco Dental April 27 and 28 at Loew’s, Philadelphia, more than 250 attendees will be invited to participate in the Bubble Gum Challenge to improve the lives of oral cancer patients and their families
Through April 30, the general public and the dental community can join in with a simple bubble or a donation.
The 2017 Bubble Gum Challenge @oralcancerblows features individuals, including members of the dental community, utilizing social media to post pictures and videos of themselves blowing bubbles for those who cannot.
Created by Oral Cancer Cause, Inc. (OCC), a non-profit organization that is celebrating its fifth year of improving the lives of oral cancer patients and their families, the Challenge is a whimsical way to draw attention to a devastating disease with a 50 percent mortality rate. OCC hopes that the Challenge will highlight the impacts of oral cancer and the fact that many survivors lose various functionalities, including the ability to chew gum or blow a bubble.
Sponsors of the Second Annual Bubble Gum Challenge, including Benco Dental, Care Credit and Revenue Well, aim to increase public awareness of oral cancer and help cancer patients through financial support.
