Incredible organization focused on ensuring kids who are battling cancer and their families maintain whatever level of normalcy they can during an incredibly emotional and challenging time. Friends offers educational, social and psychological programming aimed at helping kids with cancer...be kids! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this organization and what it stands for in allowing a sense of childhood to continue while these amazing warriors battle their illnesses. PROUD to serve!

Amazing organization that does tons of stuff for pediatric and young adult cancer survivors- art therapy, tutoring, a couple college scholarships, trips, etc!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way they treat whole families and the patient. They offer many amazing services and go out of their way to do everything!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do what they do!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way they treat whole families and the patient. They offer many amazing services and go out of their way to do everything! They also reach out to the families that have lost their children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

truly amazing and self-sacrificing. They love what they do and care so much for the kids.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help other people in other cities. Right now, it is just in St. Louis, MO and outlying areas.

Ways to make it better...

can't think of anything

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money, as most organizations deal with.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they have changed my life.
