Likes For Lives

(Houston, TX) Forward Science, a medical device company based in Houston, Texas, was founded with the goal of advancing oral healthcare through cancer screening. With this goal in mind, the Forward Science team launched their most recent philanthropic initiative— the “Likes for Lives Campaign” which donates one OralID device to a deserving organization with every 500 likes they receive on Facebook.

OralID, Forward Science’s flagship product, screens patients for oral abnormalities and oral cancer using fluorescence technology. Some of the top cancer centers in the world utilize OralID as their preferred method of care, showing the value of the device. This philanthropic initiative gives non-profit organizations the chance to integrate this award-winning, industry-standard technology into their practice—an opportunity they may not have previously had the resources for. “We launched this company with the goal to provide life-changing technology to dental patients,” says Forward Science’s CEO, Robert Whitman. “This initiative allows us to partner with non-profits to equip them the technology to perform proper, and essential, oral cancer screenings on community members who may not have had this opportunity otherwise. We look forward to seeing the impact OralID can have on the groups we donate to and give patients a higher standard of care with our products.”

This initiative seeks to provide devices to any kind of non-profit group volunteering in the dental space. Whether it be global medical outreach trips or medical clinics serving their community, Forward Science seeks to empower these groups with the most updated and effective tools by gifting an OralID. “We believe that awareness and early detection are the keys in the fight against cancer,” says Forward Science’s Marketing Coordinator, Ashley Richards. “Our ‘Likes for Lives’ campaign allows us to utilize the power of social media and provide many organizations the power to become life changers! not only through screenings for the highest growing cancer, but by joining in an important conversation to create awareness of the severity of oral cancer and to stress the importance of routine screening.
