    Welcome to the Chicago Walk In Memory of Susan Chang

    My mother, Susan Chang, was a remarkable woman. She was a brave and selfless woman who gave everything for everyone else; a person that words just cannot describe. She lost her life too soon at the age of 59 to nasopharyngeal carcinoma, a rare form of head and neck cancer.  This walk is a labor of love to honor my dear mother. This 1st annual walk will mark the one year anniversary of her passing, however her legacy will live on in our efforts to save others.

    When you walk in the Oral Cancer Foundation Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the Oral Cancer Foundation (OCF) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support oral cancer survivors.

    Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, OCF has been able to fund multiple published research that aids in the fight agaist oral cancer.
