Raleigh Dentist to Bicycle Across North Carolina to Raise Oral Cancer Awareness
Date:10/2/2007

RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Steven Andreaus, a Raleigh dentist, will bicycle from Murphy to Manteo, N.C., Oct. 6 - 11 to call attention to oral cancer.

On the 6-day 750-mile solo ride, called "The Ride for Oral Cancer" (ROC), Andreaus will average 140 miles daily.

"We're hoping to call attention to the importance of annual oral cancer exam," says Andreaus.

The veteran cyclist, who has ridden in major European cycling events, was inspired to undertake the trek by his friendship with Lance Armstrong, seven- time winner of cycling's Tour de France and a cancer survivor.

"I was also motivated by UNC's football coach Butch Davis' oral cancer diagnosis earlier this year," Andreaus adds. He hopes to meet Davis when he passes through Chapel Hill Oct. 9 to thank him for helping the North Carolina Dental Society to publicize early diagnosis.

"Oral cancer is a very curable disease if caught early. It's important, especially for adults over 40, to have a cancer screening as part of an annual dental checkup."

Andreaus will ride through the heart of North Carolina, beginning in the Smokey Mountains following the "Trail of Tears." His route will take him through the Triad, the Triangle, and end on the Outer Banks.

Along the way, he plans to meet with fellow dentists to urge them to continue their efforts to detect oral cancer.
