Reviews for National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

My friend was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer at 33 years old. He is the sole provider for his wife and 2 young children. As if it isn't devastating enough to get this diagnosis, but also factor in that he can no longer financially support his family. I have seen the physical and emotional pain he has been going through during this battle. As I searched and searched for resources for him and his family to just help them get by, provide a little relief, I kept hitting dead ends. Until I found the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. The kindness and support they have shown is beyond remarkable. They have been true angels! If there were more foundations like this, with the genuinely kind people running it - this world would be a much better place! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them.

I can't say enough good things about this foundation. I was so lucky that I found them, as I was on the verge of loosing our home and everything that we worked for all our life. It is so comforting to know that there are people out there that help out this great cause. I am so grateful, words just can even describe. My most sincere thanks to the NPCF.

I got pancreatic cancer in July of 2014. As my cancer progressed and I went through chemo, I found that the co$t of co-pays for medications; for surgeries; for biopsies; and everything in general were exorbitant. I found myself pushed into poverty, and I became desperate for financial help.

Right then I found the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation! I couldn't believe that an organization existed, for ANY illness, much less pancreatic cancer, that would do so very much to help sufferers of this horrid disease - and just when I needed it most!

The Foundation, and Rhonda in particular, have always been very fair and absolutely prompt in responding to all of my requests and needs. Rhonda has gone out of her way to assist me on a number of occasions, for instance, in getting a payment out to a creditor on a schedule so that it is not late. I have received help in paying my rent in full for 6 months; and also gas and electric bills, and my phone bill.

It has been not just a pleasure but a delight to have the NPCF in my life. They have helped me more than I could ever imagine. And the impact of this help has significantly lowered my stress, fear, and worry level; enabling me to focus on healing, doing the many things that I had to do, to address pancreatic cancer.

The NPCF is one GREAT foundation! I will remember them and be grateful to them for the rest of my life. Truly, I give them the highest recommendation that a foundation of this kind can ever receive!

Thank you, NPCF!!

When I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June 2015 me and my family had been going threw some difficult moments, due to the fact my wife had suffered an accident earlier that year exactly on my birthday Feb. 6 that caused her severe brain trauma. My daughter has been helping me with my financial needs but she lost her job 2 years ago so she is limited in her help since she has a family of her own. At the beginning of my treatment she knew what came with all the treatments and she was asked if I had any financial difficulties and she responded to the question and thanks to her and to an amazing team in the MCGlinn cancer institution that provided us with your non profit organization, the case worker Lisa Capparella got all the documents needed to participate in this this non profit organization. And weather we get help or not I'm grateful for the opportunity given to me to work with many great people. People that take time to help those in need May God Bless you all and May this organization keep helping those in need.

Truly

There is real heart in this organization and the people they help truly appreciate it. This is by far one of the most passionate foundations I've dealt with, and I work in non-profits. Thank you for all you do!

I have known Rhonda, the CEO and president of the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, and I can not say enough about the drive, and commitment she has to helping families during their difficult times with pancreatic cancer. This foundation has a great "foundation" to helping people take on Pancreatic cancer and assist those in financial need.
