Adam Yauch, founder of the Beastie Boys, has passed away after a nearly three year struggle with Salivary Gland Cancer. It is with great sadness that the world says goodbye to not only a talented musician always pushing the limits, but even more a humanitarian always striving to make the world around him a better place. New York has lost a great soul.
While this is a rare form of cancer, Adam has brought to life through his struggle the reminder of its impact. In my opinion, it is just another example of how short life can be. Your dentist and hygienist will screen for oral cancers at every visit. Take the time to maintain your preventative care and put yourself first.
