Four days after Matthew Snowden, 38, found out his wife was pregnant with their second child, he received some news he never thought he would hear – an oral cancer diagnosis.

He had his wisdom teeth removed just a few months before the spot came up and assumed the discomfort was linked to that procedure.

Just a few days later, Snowden was diagnosed with stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma and began exploring treatment options.
