Gruen Von Behrens, a national spokesperson for Oral Health America’s National Spit Tobacco Education Program (NSTEP), stopped at Fort Frances High School this morning to share his story as he tours across the region. Von Behrens was diagnosed with oral cancer as the age of 17 and after 34 surgeries, his lower face is severely disfigured. He educated students here about the dangers of tobacco use.
