Actress Colleen Zenk Pinter Partners with the Oral Cancer Foundation to Raise Public Awareness
Date:11/30/2007

ructive strains of the virus, was definitively linked to oral cancer in 2001. Research has also established that the virus, which can easily be transferred, may even be a more significant risk factor than tobacco in the younger portion of the population.

"Colleen is an amazing woman", said Hill. "Even BEFORE she had begun her treatments for the cancer, she contacted me and wanted to become an advocate for early detection and increased awareness. She was clearly taken by surprise to have developed this cancer. Most people at that point in the process are only thinking of themselves, and getting through the really tough treatments successfully. Her willingness to talk publicly about her very personal and painful battle with oral cancer is certainly courageous, and the desire to help others is palpable when you speak with her. Her story and high profile celebrity as a well-known TV actress will have enormous impact educating the public about this deadly and disfiguring disease. This is one of the purest examples of altruistic, celebrity power being used to better other people's lives. We are lucky to have this partnership with Colleen."

Now cancer-free, Zenk Pinter urged viewers of The Early Show to get regular oral cancer screenings. "Your dentist should be doing an oral cancer exam at every visit," Zenk Pinter said. "It's a simple 5 minute, painless exam that may save your life."

The Early Show was only the first of what is on the public awareness schedule for Zenk Pinter. A recent interview with Soap Opera Digest is already on the newsstands, and interviews with other magazines have been scheduled. In December she will film a TV Public Service Announcement on the need for early detection through annual screenings. OCF will distribute the PSA to TV stations across the country at the beginning of 2008.
