Children with brain related cancers were given special toothbrushes and toothpaste as part of a charity’s new campaign.

Chemo and radiotherapy to the head and neck area can destroy cells in the mouth which could cause bleeding gums, sores, and problems with tooth development.

The Michael Charles Adams Memorial (MCA) Trust supports children with brain tumours, and launched its Tooth Campaign at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, on Tuesday, April 3.

Members of the charity were accompanied by Moana, Belle, and Marshall of Paw Patrol as they visited children in the oncology clinic.

Katie Heaphy, head of marketing at the MCA Trust told the Recorder: “The kids absolutely loved it, they all had smiles on their faces.

“A few of the parents commented that when they go to hospital, they often forget to take their children’s toothbrushes with them, but having our packs will help them.”
