Great help in seeking treatment for kidney Cancer. Knowing few of the options, they helped me to decide on cryogenic surgery which is minimally invasive. The effort put forth by the staff in making so much critical information available is a great gift to those of us confronting the disease for the first time. Thank you ACF.

Love, Love Love this charity. They do great things for people who were just diagnosed with cancer. Have volunteered and helped with 5k events. Saw first hand the impact they have on the lives of everyone who calls them or goes to the website.

Also, the sunscreen they sell is amazing.

My name is Wendy and I called these people to get help for my cousin in the Florida Keys. I live and work in NC at the carolinas healthcare.org and was unable to find the information needed to help Tammy. Here is the note I sent to Paula at ACF who helped me. "Wow, what a plethora of information. I really appreciate all you have done to help my cousin. She will be overwhelmed from your kindness. I will get this information over to her now."

Please use caution with this organization as it doesn't do exactly what it says it does with the money that is raised and cancer patients that are "helped". People are not available all of the time to assist you via phone and they have multiple names they are associated with making you question the validity of this organization. I have volunteered with them in the past and it was awful with the direction coming from the very top (ex: president/director) and the lack of the direction and dedication the head of this organization has. Proceed with caution and use American Cancer Society for all donations as you can be 100% sure of that money going to Cancer patients and getting them information quick and honest, all while helping them save lives. This organization does not and I have seen it on a personal level. So unfortunate.

These people are wonderful. Had no idea that their where so many cancer charities out there. They steared me to the right hospital and website for my renal cancer. Told me about ACOR and gave me such great support. Can't say enough good things about these folks!

working with this charity I contacted a number of agencies and drug companies to help an individual get a life saving chemo treatment for free. The gentleman got the drug and we're happy to say he's alive today.
